All cases showed postoperative union and most of them (94.4%) had bony union and only (5.6%) had a fibrous union. Regarding range of motion and the shoulder functional evaluation there was a highly statistically significant improvement in all examined items (p-value<0.001). 123.0 % improvement postoperatively with a highly statistically significant increase in the constant score from (48.1±6.2) to (91.4±3.7) (p-value<0.001). 93.6 % improvement postoperatively with a highly statistically significant increase in the ULCA score from (14.6±2.9) to (31.3±1.8) (p-value<0.001). Most of the studied group (16 cases, 88.8%) didn't have any postoperative complications, one case had a hematoma (5.6%) and one case had a superficial infection (5.6%). Conclusion: It could be concluded that the open Latarjet procedure has confirmed to be an effective and efficient procedure for shoulder stabilization.
