Osteoarthrosis of the glenohumeral joint is a potential late complication of anterior Putti-Platt capsulorrhaphy. In ten patients (eleven shoulders), disabling pain in the shoulder began an average of 13.2 years after a Putti-Platt repair that had been done for recurrent anterior unidirectional instability. In all of the patients, the osteoarthrosis of the glenohumeral joint resulted in substantial limitation of motion. Seven shoulders were successfully treated non-operatively, and a technique of anterior release was successful in four shoulders.
