Hill-Sachs remplissage procedure

Last revised by Yuranga Weerakkody on 8 Sep 2021

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

History and etymology

Remplissage means 'fill-in' in French.
