Humeral bone loss has been shown to be a risk factor for failure after arthroscopic treatment of instability. We present the arthroscopic remplissage technique originally described by Koo and Burkhart et al. with a modification in the percutaneous anchor placement and suture tying that is reproducible and effective. We percutaneously place 2 suture anchors, which require no additional suture passing across the tissue, to create a double pulley technique, filling the defect with posterior capsule and rotator cuff. Therefore, the Hill-Sachs defect becomes extra-articular, eliminating the potential engagement of the anterior glenoid and contribution to recurrence of instability.

This technique is applicable broadly for most Hill-Sachs lesions that need addressing. By not having to pass or shuttle any suture through tissue after anchor placement and by eliminating the necessity to go subacromially to retrieve or tie suture, the technique saves time and improves reproducibility. The compression of tissue into the Hill Sachs surface area also is improved by double-reinforced suturing through the double-pulley technique. The combination of these advantages creates a sound and efficient technique for remplissage.
