Bankart repair (Surgery and Procedure)

The glenoid labrum is a fibrocartilage rim surrounding the edge of the glenoid fossa (shoulder socket). This labrum can be damaged or torn in different ways. When a patient’s shoulder is dislocated, the anterior (front) portion of the labrum is often torn. This is called a Bankart tear or lesion, and it is the most common form of ligament injury to the shoulder.

Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Weakness in the shoulder when lifting, throwing or reaching overhead
  • Rotational instability
  • Pain in the shoulder with movement, especially overhead motions
  • Aching sensations
  • The shoulder locking up or needing to pop
