Initial treatment of multidirectional instability of the shoulder would be a thorough rehabilitation program- lf rehabilitation fails to resolve a patient's symptoms, the most commonly performed surgical procedure remains the inferior capsular shift. Eleven patients who had disabling multidirectional instability of the shoulder were managed with the inferior capsular shift. All of the procedure were performed by means of an anterior approach and a laterally based capsular shift. All of the patients were the contact athletes. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the efficacy of the inferior capsular shift procedure in the contact athletic patients, to review the loss of external rotation postoperatively and to discuss their return to sports. Mean follow up duration was 14.5 months(range, 12 to 24). Pain was relieved postoperatively in all cases and most patients could get stability except one case of recurrent subluxation. The average loss of external rotation and forward flexion after the operation were 5° and 3° at last follow up. By the rating scale from American Shoulder and Elbow Society, overall scores improved from 49 points to 85 points. The results were excellent or good in 9 patients(82%) out of 11 patients. In reference to return to sports, 10 patients(91%) of 11 patients returned to their sports with 7 patients (64%) returning at the same levels of competitiveness. The inferior capsular shift procedure was considered to be a recommendable method for the management of the multidirectional instability of the shoulder.
