- When the labrum of the shoulder joint is torn, the stability of the shoulder joint is compromised.
- A Specific type of labral tear is called a Bankart’s lesion.
- A Bankart’s lesion occurs when an individual sustains an anterior dislocation.
- As the shoulder pops out of the joint, it often causes tear of the labrum and stripping of periosteum from anterior surface (more specifically antero-inferior) of glenoid.
- In severe injuries, there may be avulsion of piece of bone from antero-inferior glenoid rim, called bony Bankart lesion.
