Shoulder instability in children 18 years and under

What promotes recurrent shoulder instability after traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation?

Studies examining recurrent shoulder instability following a first-time anterior shoulder dislocation do not differentiate between children and adults. The aim of this systematic review was to identify risk factors associated with recurrent shoulder instability following first-time traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation in children aged 18 years and under. A recurrent shoulder instability event was defined as either a subluxation or dislocation. 

Eight common risk factors for recurrent shoulder instability following a first-time traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation in children 18 years old or younger were identified. These included: age, sex, mechanism of initial injury, state of physis closure, shoulder dominance and side of the affected shoulder, Hill-Sachs lesion and Bankart lesion.
