OASIS Study: Comparison of 3 Different Interventions for Shoulder Instability - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to find out which type of surgery has the best outcomes for people who have shoulder dislocations with bone loss. There are 3 types of surgeries that doctors can perform to stabilize the shoulder of people who have this type of injury, but there is no evidence at this time that proves one is better than the others. We hope this study can help us figure out how to choose the best option for different patients. This is an observational study and participation will not affect the treatment option you choose to pursue.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Shoulder Dislocation and Instability with Bone Loss

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Adults and children ages 17-50 who:

  • Have a traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation
  • Plan to have surgery to treat their shoulder injury
  • Have injury-related glenoid bone loss of 1-20%
  • Have not had any previous surgery on the injured shoulder

Age Group
Adults, Children

What is Involved?

If you choose to join this study, you and your doctor will choose 1 of the 3 standard surgeries to repair your shoulder:

  • Bankart repair with remplissage; OR
  • Open Bankart repair; OR
  • Latarjet procedure

No matter which type of surgery you have, you will also have physical therapy afterward. The type of rehabilitation you do will depend on what surgery you have. Participation in this study will have no effect on what procedure you and your doctor can choose to treat your shoulder.

We will ask you to fill out questionnaires related to your recovery for up to 2 years after your surgery. Some of these can be done during your routine follow-up visits or physical therapy appointments, and some can be done online.
