Abstract: Introduction: There are various methods been described for treatment of the recurrent dislocation of shoulder. This includes arthroscopic Bankart repair, Bristow-Latarjet procedure (transfer of coracoid process to the glenoid defect) or a bone graft to the Hill-Sach’s lesion, osteotomy as well as conservative (non-surgical) treatment particularly in older patients with shoulder instability.
Materials and Method: In the Latarjet procedure, fixation of the coracoid process to the glenoid defect is done by using two screws which is not only technically difficult but very much morbid, therefore in transfer of the coracoid process to the anterior inferior glenoid defect the fixation was done by single titanium screw.
Results & Conclusion: We have noticed excellent to good outcome using Constant score in treatment of the recurrent dislocation of shoulder using a single titanium screw.
