Abstract TOP Currently, there is little information on the results of Bankart repairs in older patients. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the results, complications, and rates of revision among patients aged 50 years or greater undergoing Bankart repairs. Between 1992 and 1999, 12 Bankart repairs were performed on patients aged 50 years or greater (mean, 57 years) at our institution. Eleven patients with complete clinical records, operative reports, and minimum 3-year follow-up (mean, 6.5 years) were included in the study. All patients had shoulder instability as a result of specific trauma. Six patients underwent open repairs, and five underwent arthroscopic repairs. There were no patients with full-thickness rotator cuff tears. At the most recent follow-up, there were no shoulders with recurrent instability. The mean simple shoulder test score was 10.8 in the open group and 9.8 in the arthroscopic group. The mean American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons score was 98 in the open group versus 87 in the arthroscopic group. At the most recent follow-up, mean elevation in the open group was 178° versus 174° in the arthroscopic group. Mean external rotation was 70° in the open group and 72° in the arthroscopic group. The data from this study suggest that Bankart repair in older patients is associated with a low recurrence rate, and similar results may be obtained with either open or arthroscopic procedures.
