Abstract

Patients who underwent surgery for shoulder instability were younger, more likely to have experienced recurrent instability, and more likely to have sustained their original injury while playing sports. The FEDS classification, particularly the frequency and etiology of the patient's shoulder instability, may be helpful in identifying patients with a higher likelihood of undergoing surgical treatment.
