Pathophysiology and biomechanics of glenohumeral instability

Li X, Yannopoulos P. Warner JP.  Pathophysiology and Biomechanics of Glenohumeral Instability. Controversies in Shoulder Instability. (1st Edition) 2013.  Editors: Christopher C. Dodson, David M. Dines, Joshua S. Dines, Gilles Walch, and Gerald Williams.  Publisher: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Hippocrates  was  the  first  to  investigate  the  pathophysiology  of  the  unstable shoulder  (anterior  instability  and  treatment)  over  1,000  years  ago.  Early investigations  attributed instability to traumatic  events  or congenital  shoulder abnormalities.  The  capsuloligamentous complex  of  the glenohumeral joint was first described in 1829 as consisting of the superior, middle, and inferior glenohumeral ligaments.
