Arthroscopic Glenoid Resurfacing With Meniscal Allograft: A Minimally Invasive Alternative for Treating Glenohumeral Arthritis
The chronically painful arthritic glenohumeral joint recalcitrant to nonsurgical treatment modalities generally has been treated with an open arthroplasty type of procedure. Certain patients may benefit from a less invasive surgical technique in which a meniscal allograft is used to resurface the glenoid, resulting in decreased pain and increased function. We describe an arthroscopic method of glenoid resurfacing with a meniscal allograft to aid in the restoration of function by providing pain relief to patients debilitated by arthritic conditions of the glenohumeral joint.
