A Latarjet procedure is a procedure for shoulder instability. The procedure involves transfer of a bone block from the coracoid to the deficient area over the front of the glenoid. Screws are used to attach the bone block.
In this case the patient (a young woman) was happy with the surgery of her right shoulder that was done about two years ago. On ultrasound I could see how far posteriorly the screws came out. Into the infraspinatus, but there is no major oedema and she had good range of motion, good strength and no pain. I have seen this before following Latarjet, that the screws are visible on the back of the glenoid/scapula and seem to have found its space within the infraspinatus with no discomfort for the patient ?
