About Bankart Surgery

The shoulder is a complex structure comprising bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons working together harmoniously to provide the maximum range of motion. However, sometimes the harmonious motion can be disturbed due to injury or overuse of the joint resulting in a forceful shoulder dislocation. A dislocation occurs when the humerus head comes away from the glenoid fossa due to possible overstretching or tearing of the surrounding tissues. A glenoid labrum tear in the anterior part of the joint is called a bankart lesion. Bankart lesions can be easily repaired via arthroscopic surgery in Chennai at Pristyn Care.


Shoulder Dislocation Treatment

Bankart Lesions Diagnosis

Bankart lesions are common in patients suffering from a dislocated shoulder, but they can’t be diagnosed easily in physical examination. Bankart tears are usually only identified via soft tissue imaging such as MRI or via an arthroscopy or MR arthrography. In some cases, it may be seen in a shoulder dislocation X-ray.

Shoulder Dislocation Treatment

Dislocated joints can be managed via medical management, but the most effective recurrent shoulder dislocation treatment associated with bankart lesions is via arthroscopic repair. An arthroscopic bankart repair surgery involves the repair of the torn ligament via sutures called anchors. The procedure provides significant improvement in shoulder function with a low recurrence rate and increased shoulder stability.

How is arthroscopic bankart repair surgery performed?

The treatment is performed via a minimally invasive technique called arthroscopy. First, the surgeon creates a few tiny incisions in the shoulder joint region, through which an arthroscope is inserted. An arthroscope is a slender tubular instrument with a light and a camera attachment. Then, the surgeon trims the edges of the glenoid cavity and attaches suture anchors to reattach the detached labrum.

Anterior shoulder dislocation vs posterior shoulder dislocation

Anterior shoulder dislocations are the most common dislocations. They usually occur due to forced or abnormal abduction, external rotation and extension motions of the joint. They are characterized by shallow anterior glenoid contours that predispose them to recurrent shoulder dislocations. They are usually managed by closed reduction and immobilization of the joint. Surgical repair is not necessary unless it is accompanied by complications like bankart tear, labrum tear, etc.

Posterior shoulder dislocations are much less common and are a little more challenging to diagnose. They are more common in patients with convulsive disorders, like epilepsy, seizure disorder, etc. Occasionally, they can occur due to strength imbalance in the rotator cuff muscles. They can easily go unnoticed, especially in elderly patients. They are difficult to treat via closed reduction, and an expert ortho surgeon should be requested to reduce them. However, if the dislocation occurred over 3 weeks ago, then surgical treatment may be necessary.
