Abstract

Laxity of the inferior glenohumeral ligament is the essential lesion in involuntary multidirectional instability of the shoulder. Most important in the diagnosis, which is difficult to make, is the physical examination. Treatment consists of strengthening the muscles in the direction of the greatest instability. If this fails after a year, surgery is indicated.
