I’m not much of a sailor, but when our friends Bill and Christy get me on the Lone Star , my wife Carol enjoys the sea and I spend a lot of my time looking at the boats and wondering how and why they were named. The best I have ever seen was a beautiful sailboat, the Never Again 2.
After Harvard Ellman and I wrote Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery and Related Procedures, I told Carol I would never write another textbook. Ten years later I wrote Shoulder Arthroscopy and promised her, never again.
Here we are at Shoulder Arthroscopy 2nd edition, the Never Again 2 of textbooks. Carol, you are the greatest. Thank you for your patience and love, again.
Seventeen years have passed since the publication of Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery and Related Procedures . Harvard Ellman and I co-authored that text in an attempt to bridge the gap between traditional open operations and newer arthroscopic approaches. Many today did not have the opportunity to know Dr. Ellman; he was a wonderful man and a true pioneer. He was the perfect person to introduce this fledgling field of shoulder arthroscopy to the world. The Ralph Bunche quote “If you want to get across an idea, wrap it up in a person” applied to Harvard.
The first edition of Shoulder Arthroscopy was published 6 years ago. The pace of progress and the rate at which we have accumulated knowledge has accelerated in shoulder arthroscopy, as it has in practically all other forms of human endeavor. It is for this reason that we have decided to publish the second edition of Shoulder Arthroscopy . Thermal capsulorrhaphy did not survive prolonged follow-up. Double-row rotator cuff repair is more common. Biceps lesions are treated more aggressively. The Latarjet procedure for shoulder instability has entered the United States, and the Bristow is making a comeback! Diagnostic ultrasound is more mainstream. Suprascapular nerve lesions can be treated arthroscopically. Many readers requested more information about rehabilitation, and I think Mike De la Flor’s video animations are superb. Use them to instruct your patients.
The purpose of this textbook is to present the current state of arthroscopic shoulder surgery as seen by one author. There are, of course, many different methods to treat shoulder lesions with arthroscopy, but I have chosen to present my own views and trust that the reader will also seek out the opinions of others. My focus in this book is primarily on operative technique, and my goal is to present an approach to arthroscopic shoulder operations in enough detail so that the reader can manage both the routine and complex problems he or she encounters. This required that I exclude some important nonsurgical material.
There are a number of texts currently available that devote hundreds of pages to patient history, diagnosis, pathogenesis, physical examination, and imaging studies. Their bibliographies are complete and extensive.
So what kind of textbook is this? This is a book for orthopedic surgeons who want to perform reconstructive arthroscopic shoulder surgery. In order to do this, the surgeon must understand why certain procedures are performed and have them described in adequate detail. I have tried to take the reader through the operations in stepwise fashion; however, for complex procedures text is not sufficient. State-of-the-art communication in arthroscopy involves more than thoughts and words on a printed page. The accompanying DVD contains videos that illustrate the concepts and techniques that I describe in the text.
Since 1982 I have been privileged to instruct thousands of practicing orthopedic surgeons, residents, and fellows in shoulder arthroscopy. In this textbook I have adopted a tone that I hope captures the many conversations we have had. Imagine that you and I are in the operating room performing shoulder arthroscopy. You can ask all the questions you wish and I have all the time in the world to answer. Let’s begin!

The Basics
CHAPTER 1 Making the Transition
Surgeons who are considering making the transition from open shoulder surgery to arthroscopic shoulder surgery need to develop a plan or framework. There are two basic types of skills: technical and intellectual. At present, orthopedic surgeons learn the basic skills of shoulder arthroscopy during their residency or fellowship, but more advanced reconstructive surgical techniques require sufficient time with an experienced mentor. This experience varies widely among training programs.

The fundamental decision is whether to perform shoulder arthroscopy or continue to use open repair techniques. Most surgeons are comfortable with open procedures. If they are satisfied with their patient outcomes, they may see no reason to change. However, surgeons have various reasons for deciding to acquire or advance their arthroscopic skills, for example, the belief that arthroscopic techniques produce better results, peer pressure, a desire to learn new concepts and techniques, and patient demand.
Various publications and presentations have documented equal or superior results with arthroscopic techniques compared with open techniques for the performance of subacromial decompression for stage 2 impingement, acromioclavicular joint resection for arthritis, and rotator cuff repair, as well as for the treatment of glenohumeral instability.
Orthopedic surgeons are subject to peer pressure. When they talk among themselves about various shoulder conditions and their treatment, surgeons who perform only open operations may feel that they are behind the times. Orthopedic surgeons are also conditioned to consider new approaches to patient care, and although many surgeons obtain good results with open repair,
