Medical - Medical (general) / Trauma Surgery
German term or phrase: aufgelockerte Situation
Patient suffering from recurent dislocations of the right shoulder; planned arthroscopy of the shoulder:

Hier sollte insbesondere die ventrale Kapselbandsituation krtitisch abgewogen werden, inwieweit eine endoskopische Restabilisierung Aussicht auf Erfolg hat. Andernfalls muss hier bei "aufgelockerter Situation" ein offenes Verfahren gewählt werden.

I am not sure whether "aufgelockerte Situation" means ligament laxity here

Explanation:
Yes, that's what is meant here - sometimes medical reports are not much better than computer-generated phrases, it seems.
