Abstract: Intra-articular migration is a known complication of
poorly placed metallic suture anchors in rotator cuff
repair and labral reconstruction.
We report a case of intra-articular migration of a
metallic suture anchor seven years after open labral
reconstruction. Despite the fact that the patient
remained asymptomatic for seven years, presence of
an extra-osseous anchor was already noted postoperatively.
In an era where the use of suture anchors has become
common practice, surgeons should always be aware
of possible anchor migration, especially when
patients complain of sudden sharp pain, persistent
pain, a catching sensation and loss of mobility.
