Bankart's Tear

Bankart Lesions
Bankart lesions are  type of labral tear. They occur as a result of a shoulder dislocation or multiple dislocations. When the ball (humeral head) dislocates out of the socket (glenoid), the ligaments that normally hold these two structures together will either stretch or tear.
When they tear it is called a Bankart Lesion. In this case the inferior (i.e. lower) glenohumeral ligament pulls the inferior labrum away from the glenoid.
Less commonly the ligament will pull the labrum with a  piece of bone—this is known as a  bony Bankart lesion

It is an indication for surgery and often accompanied by a Hill-Sachs lesion, damage to the posterior humeral head.
Typical symptoms of a Bankart tear include:
·        - a sense of instability
·        - repeat dislocations
·         -catching sensations

·         -aching of the shoulder
  Surgical Treatment of Bankart Lesions
,  If surgery is required it can be performed completely arthroscopically through a fibre
   optic camera.

  The basic technique for labral repair requires the surgeon to
appropriately mobilize the labrum. This means they have to
free it from the surrounding scar tissue.
Next the glenoid bone has to be prepared so it bleeds and
allows the labrum to re-attach to it. Most surgeons use
dissolvable anchors. These are placed into the glenoid bone.
The sutures from these anchors are passed through the torn
labrum. At that point the surgeon can tie a knot or use a
knotless technique for final repair.
