Bankart’s repair is a surgical technique to repair the recurrent shoulder problems. In the procedure, the torn capsules are sewed together and the socket and joint are re-attached into their proper place.
When you are faced with a anterior dislocated shoulder, you might face compilations such as bankart lesion due to an injury on the glenoid labrum of the shoulder.
Initially, the surgeon will make small incisions in the front and back of the shoulder. Small holes are drilled near the detached labrum and attach sutures to the labrum and pull them tightly across the anchors so the labrum can be reattached to the glenoid.
Once the ligaments are firmly in place, the incisions are then closed with small bandages and the surgery is complete.
