Arthroscopic Bankart surgery – for recurrent dislocation of the shoulder joint
A 36year old male patient who presented with recurrent dislocation of the left shoulder joint. This was causing recurrent episodes of pain and disability to the person. He had pain on all activities involving lifting the arm above the head and moving it outwards. Here you can see an Arthroscopic (Key-hole) repair of the torn labrum, called Arthroscopic Bankart surgery. You can see Biocomposite Suture anchors used to fix the torn labrum back to the glenoid bone (cup of the shoulder joint).
This video shows a rare variant of the Bankart lesion (detachment of the glenoid labrum and capsule from the glenoid bone (cup of the shoulder joint). This is called a Perthe’s lesion where the anterior glenoid labrum has a false attachment to the bone. But this does not have biomechanical strength and the shoulder was weak and unstable on movement. He had a superior labram anterior-posterior tear.
In this video you can see suture anchor fixation of the anteroinferior labrum and the superior labrum.
