Editorial Commentary: Distal Tibia Allograft as an Option for Glenoid Reconstruction in Recurrent Shoulder Instability-It's All About the Bone?

Author information

Westmont, Illinois.


Bony defects in recurrent shoulder instability can lead to the failure of soft tissue reconstruction. Many techniques have been developed to address glenoid defects in an attempt to prevent recurrent instability. However, the high complication rates with the Latarjet procedure have led surgeons to identify other sources of bone graft, including the distal tibia allograft (DTA). The DTA appears to be a suitable option for anterior glenoid reconstruction, highlighting the importance of reconstructing all bony defects and the versatility and efficacy of allograft bone blocks.
