Capsular volume reduction is becoming a more popular procedure for treating the unstable shoulder. We present a novel technique of arthroscopic labral repair and capsular plication using a single suture anchor with two nonabsorbable braided sutures that repairs the involved labrum and capsule separately. It is a simple technique from the standpoint of simultaneous labral repair and capsular plication, making it easily reproducible and cost-effective.
