Although arthroscopic Bankart repair is now more common, open repair should be considered for younger patients participating in contact sports or military activity, osseous Bankart lesions, revision cases, shoulder instability with  subcritical (20% to 25%) glenoid bone loss, ligamentous laxity, or cases not considered repairable with arthroscopic techniques. Therefore, knowing how to perform an open Bankart repair is essential.
