The Connolly procedure is performed by an open posterior approach and involves transferring the infraspinatus with a portion of greater tuberosity into the defect, rendering the defect extra-articular; although this procedure restores the stability, it reduces the shoulder range of movement. The arthroscopic approach of the same procedure is known as remplissage.
