Five patients were identified who underwent allograft reconstruction of large Hill-Sachs lesions (1 female and 4 males).
Bone grafting may be indicated in cases of instability associated with a Hill-Sachs lesion involving 20% to 45% of the articular arc (36) or in cases of glenoid rim loss greater than 20%.
A posteromedial Hill-Sachs lesion tends to engage the anterior glenoid rim with less external rotation than more posterolateral lesions.
74) The coracoid graft and attached conjoined tendon acts to extend the anteroinferior glenoid margin to 1) restore the glenoid rim; 2) deepen the glenoid concavity; 3) increase the glenoid arc to prevent a Hill-Sachs lesion from engaging the anteroinferior rim; and 4) provide an anterior sling effect of the conjoined tendon with the shoulder in the abducted position.
Hill-Sachs lesions most commonly occur in the patient with recurrent shoulder dislocation but may also occur with an initial dislocation.
