Kevin Bonner, MD co-authored an article in publication “Arthroscopy Techniques” about an arthroscopic procedure to treat Bennett lesions. The publication aims to provide arthroscopic and related researchers and clinicians with practical, clinically relevant, innovative methods that could be applied in surgical practice.
Bennett lesions are also known as “thrower's exostosis” of the shoulder and are not uncommon in overhead throwing athletes. The literature around the optimal operative management of the symptomatic Bennett lesion is limited. The purpose of Dr. Bonner’s (et al) article is to describe the arthroscopic surgical technique to treat these. Because many surgeons may not be familiar with this problem or procedure, the authors presented a straightforward method that allows for identification and excision of the exostosis through an arthroscopic posterior arthrotomy.
