The purpose of this study is to evaluate the short-term clinical outcome of the capsulolabral repair using absorbable suture anchor in traumatic anterior instability of shoulder. Materials and Methods: From June 2000 to September 2001, 15 shoulders with recurrent anterior instability were operated with arthroscopic Bankart repair using absorbable suture-anchor “PANALOK”(Mitek, westwood, MA), and were followed up over 1 year (average; 13 months). The mean age was 23-years. There were fourteen males and one female. The mean duration from the initial symptoms to the operation was 24 months. Associated pathologies were Hill-Sachs defect in 12 cases, SLAP in 6 cases, and partial rotator cuff tear in 2 cases. The results were evaluated by patient’s satisfaction, Modified Rowe Score in regard to joint stability, mobility, pain and function in comparison with the preoperative ones, and other complications. Results: At the last follow-up, the total Rowe Score increased from 38 points to 92 points. There were no recurrence and 14 patients among 15 patients gained pre-operative level of sports activity and no other complications. Conclusion: Effective capsulolabral repair could be obtained by the absorbable anchoring without any untoward complications. This procedure is simple and safe one and this system can be a good substitute for the metallic anchor.
