Background: The Bankart lesion is the common form of labro-ligamentous injury in patients with traumatic dislocations of the shoulder leading to recurrent shoulder instability. We present a case series of thirteen service personnel with post traumatic recurrent anterior dislocation of shoulder that were managed with arthroscopic Bankart repair using titanium suture anchors. Materials and Methods: Thirteen young service personnel with posttraumatic recurrent anterior dislocation of shoulder were treated by arthroscopic repair from Apr 2012 to Jun 2013. Patients were evaluated after06,12,24 and 52 weeks postoperatively. A result of the group was evaluated on the basis of post-operative pain, range of motion, postoperative function, satisfaction level of patient and return to active service. Results: Six patients who were followed for more than 06 months in this series had good outcome in terms of shoulder stability, range of motion, active forward flexion, satisfaction and cosmesis. Conclusion: Arthroscopic Bankart repair with the use of titanium suture anchors is a reliable treatment method, with good clinical outcomes, excellent postoperative shoulder motion and return to active service.
