Posterior glenoid reconstruction using distal tibia allograft is an available technique for the treatment of posterior shoulder instability with glenoid bone loss. A key aspect to this procedure relies on maintaining complete control of the graft during insertion and securement to the posterior glenoid. Although there are commercially available products to aid with graft control, we describe a novel graft transfer technique that is compatible with all cannulated systems for maintaining positive graft control. This technique allows the surgery to be performed in an arthroscopic manner using current instrumentation for open glenoid reconstruction.
