Left Arthroscopic Repair of Bankart Lesion with Two 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 two holes in the anteroinferior glenoid neck. Surgeons pass two sutures through the anteroinferior labrum. They secure the sutures with cinch stitches and then pass through the eyelets of two knotless suture anchors. The anchors are impacted into the glenoid neck, repairing the labrum.
