Abstract: A prospective study was done on 21 patients with mean age of years (range yrs) underwent arthroscopic Bankart repair with suture anchors for anterior shoulder instability at Sports Injury Centre, Sanjay Gandhi Institute of Trauma and Orthopaedics, Bangalore. The study was conducted from 2014 to 2016 with a minimum follow-up of 1 year. Functional outcome was assessed with two outcome measures - Walch-Duplays and UCLA scoring system. Range of motion, recurrence rate and patient satisfaction were evaluated. Functional outcome was good to excellent in most of patients, 2 patients (9.5%) had fair results and one patient (4.7%) had poor scoring. Most of patients showed improvement in range of motion with one patient didn't show improvement. Rate of recurrence was 4.7% (1 patient out of 21). In Conclusion, Arthroscopic Bankart repair for anterior shoulder instability provides good to excellent functional outcome, improved range of motions and low recurrence rate.
