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. Arthroscopic Bankart repair begins by debriding the tear down to stable tissue and drilling three holes in the anteroinferior glenoid neck. Three sutures are then passed through the anteroinferior labrum, secured with cinch stitches, and passed through the eyelets of three knotless suture anchors. The anchors are then impacted into the glenoid neck, repairing the labrum.
