Portal Placement and Related Anatomy
Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique that allows optimal visualization of the glenohumeral joint, subacromial, and coracoid space. A long learning curve is required to achieve a safe and effective surgery that passes through a deep knowledge of the anatomy and the pathology of the shoulder. The only way to have a correct approach to the joint, as in every arthroscopic procedure, is the adequate knowledge and the correct placement of the portals. This will improve intra-articular and subacromial visualization and also allow the right angle of approach and the range of motion required by the surgical procedure.
