Arthroscopic Bankart

Catherine Logan

A Bankart lesion is an avulsion of the anterior labrum and anterior band of the IGHL from the anterior inferior glenoid and is present in 80-90% of patients with traumatic anterior shoulder instability (TUBS).

An Arthroscopic Bankart Repair with or without a capsular shift is indicated in first-time traumatic shoulder dislocations in athletes younger than 25 years of age, high demand athletes, those who suffer recurrent dislocation/subluxations following failed non-operative management, and/or <20% glenoid bone loss.
