Subscapularis dysfunction after open instability repair has recently received increasing attention. Various clinical studies indicate that surgical approaches using partial or complete subscapularis tendon takedown techniques might impair subscapularis recovery and can negatively influence the final clinical outcome. This review article will focus on the potential pathogenesis, diagnosis, and clinical impact of the unrecognized condition and summarizes the currently available literature.
