Left Arthroscopic Repair of Bankart Lesion with Three Knotless Anchors
A Bankart lesion is a tear of the anteroinferior labrum that is often the result of an anterior shoulder dislocation. An arthroscopic Bankart repair with three knotless anchors begins by debriding the tear down to stable tissue and drilling three holes in the anteroinferior glenoid neck. Surgeons pass three sutures through the anteroinferior labrum. They secure the sutures with cinch stitches and then pass through the eyelets of three knotless suture anchors. The anchors are then impacted into the glenoid neck, repairing the labrum.
