Our shoulder joint is made up of humerus (ball) and the glenoid (socket). The socket of the shoulder (glenoid) is covered with a layer of cartilage (labrum) that helps stabilize the shoulder joint. Repetitive overhead shoulder movements or any other trauma can cause the labrum to tear. Labral tears are often described by their location. One of the most common labral injuries is the Bankart Lesion. It is named after English Orthopaedic Surgeon Arthur Sydney Blundell Blankart, who first described the injury and the surgical repair. It is also called Glenoid Labrum Tear. A bankart lesion occurs when the labrum at the bottom front of the glenoid gets torn from the cartilage and bone. This tends to happen when the shoulder dislocates anteriorly, that is the head of the humerus is popped forward out of the glenoid socket. Along with the labrum, if the bone is also damaged (fractured), it is called Bony Bankart Lesion. When the lesion to the labrum occurs simultaneously with a structural defect of the bone of the humeral head, it is called a Hill-Sachs Lesion.
