Left Arthroscopic Repair of Type IV SLAP Tear with a Suture Anchor

SKU: S15d06011


This exhibit depicts the arthroscopic repair of a type IV SLAP tear of the labrum. The glenoid labrum is a fibrocartilaginous rim of tissue that provides stability to the shoulder socket and serves as the insertion site for the long head of the biceps brachii. There are four classifications of labral injuries known as SLAP tears (SLAP I-IV). SLAP is an acronym representing “Superior Labral tear from Anterior to Posterior.” A SLAP IV tear is a bucket-handle tear of the superior labrum, with extension of the tear into the biceps tendon.

An arthroscopy is performed on the shoulder SLAP tear and the labrum is shaved to a stable edge. A hole is drilled in the superior neck of the glenoid and a double loaded suture anchor is inserted. One limb from each suture is then passed through the labrum and tied to its corresponding suture tail.
