Background: Arthroscopic Bankart repair is now the standard procedure for shoulder stabilization in patients with recurrent anterior shoulder instability with Bankart lesion with minimum glenoid bone loss. Aims: The aim of this study is to evaluate the postoperative shoulder motion and functional outcome following arthroscopic repair of Bankart lesion with suture anchors with or without remplissage. Materials and Methods: This is a prospective study done between May 2019 and April 2021. A total of 20 patients with recurrent anterior shoulder instability were stabilized arthroscopically by the same surgical team over time. All patients met the inclusion criteria and were assessed with the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) and Rowe scoring systems. The range of motion, postoperative function, recurrence rate, and return to preinjury activities were evaluated. Results: In our study, all 20 patients were followed up for a minimum period of 1 year. All patients had a good range of motion. The two shoulder scores (ASES and Rowe) significantly improved after surgery (P < 0.05). There was only one recurrence (5%). Patients were able to return to their previous activities or physically demanding jobs. Conclusions: Arthroscopic Bankart repair for traumatic anterior shoulder instability is a good procedure with less postoperative morbidity and excellent functional outcome. It allows return of patients to previous activities without any restriction.
