Placing an anchor at the 6-o'clock position on the glenoid when performing an arthroscopic Bankart repair has been suggested by multiple authors as a potential key step in improving the outcomes of arthroscopic repair. Placement of a 6-o'clock anchor increases the peak resistance force to displacement over a traditional 3-anchor repair.
