The remplissage procedure is performed to treat engaging/off-track Hill-Sachs defects. Via an arthroscopic approach, the posterosuperior humeral head bone defect is filled with a capsulotendinosis of posterior capsule and infraspinatus. The open approach of the same procedure is the Connolly procedure.
