Articles which contained concomitant injuries (rotator cuff tear, Bankart lesion, glenohumeral instability and Hill Sachs lesion) were included if they clearly stated whether the labrum had normal segments.
This tear is called a Bankart lesion (Figs 1 and 2).
A Bankart lesion is a soft tissue avulsion of the anterior-inferior glenoid labrum, or bony fracture of the anterior-inferior glenoid rim secondary to a traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation.
For an isolated Bankart lesion, usage of three or more suture anchors is recommended, and it has been shown that a posterior repair may help to balance the stability of repair.
There are two primary types of instability, the first being traumatic (T), unidirectional (U), generally associated with a Bankart lesion (B) and responds to surgery (S).
Comparison of open and arthroscopic stabilization for recurrent shoulder dislocation in patients with a Bankart lesion.
Hecker AT, Shea M, Hayhurst JO, Myers ER, Meeks LW, Hayes WC: Pull-out strength of suture anchors for rotator cuff and Bankart lesion repairs.
The anatomic repairs tend to address the detachment of the anterior inferior glenohumeral ligament from the anterior inferior labrum, the classical Bankart lesion.
They found that both are effective stabilizers in abduction and external rotation, especially with a Bankart lesion.
18) After creating a simulated Bankart lesion and applying an anterior force to the humerus, Itoi and colleagues (31) demonstrated in cadaveric studies that the anterior displacement with the biceps loaded was significantly less than with any of the rotator cuff muscles loaded.
