Shoulder Arthroscopic Bankart repair

Shoulder dislocation and recurrent shoulder dislocation are common problems seen in the sporting population. It can also occur in people who are in automobile accidents and those who suffer from seizures.

Normally, the ball of the shoulder joint (humeral head) remains centered in the socket of the joint (glenoid). When the arm is forced backwards, the glenoid labrum and ligaments can be torn. If the labrum and ligaments do not heal, the ball will slip from the center of the glenoid frequently even with the application of minimal force.

Theorthopedic surgery required to repair this tear is called Bankart repair, which is done arthroscopically (by keyhole surgery).

Why get arthroscopic Bankart repair?

Shoulder dislocation causes tear(s) in the tissue surrounding the cup of the shoulder. This can lead to recurrent dislocations and instability of the shoulder.

The lesion (tear) is known as a Bankart tear. This term is used synonymously with shoulder dislocations. In arthroscopic Bankart repair, the tissue torn from the front of the socket will be sewn back to the rim of the socket.
