Latarjet procedure, also known as the Latarjet-Bristow procedure, is a surgical procedure to stabilize the shoulder joint in patients with repeated shoulder dislocations, chronic instability of the shoulder joint, or damage to the glenoid joint.

Project description:

For use in doctor-patient communication and on the website of the SportClinic Zurich, we concepted and designed an animation for Latarjet surgery to improve shoulder stability.

A dislocated shoulder can lead to instability of the shoulder and injuries to the glenoid cavity. To stabilize the shoulder, the coracoid process is separated from the scapula during Latarjet procedure. The subscapularis muscle overlying the shoulder joint is split and the coracoid process is fixed to the front of the shoulder joint through the opening. This closes the damaged joint capsule, provides a dynamic sling effect and enlarges the glenoid cavity.
