Recurrent shoulder dislocation is the most frequent pathology shoulder, and is easier to occur the more premature has been the first luxation. If the first occurred before age 18, there is a 95% chance to lead to a recurrent dislocation. Usually they treated with arthroscopy, after which the shoulder is immobilized for several weeks.
