Bankart Lesion

The socket of the shoulder, or glenoid, is covered in a cartilage called the labrum that cushions the bone and helps stabilize the joint. If the labrum is pulled off the front of the socket, it forms a Bankart lesion.   

Definition of Bankart Lesion

A Bankart lesion is an injury to the anterior part of the glenoid labrum of the shoulder. There are two different types of Bankart lesions - bony and soft tissue.

A soft tissue Bankart lesion are more common, and occurs when there is a tear or lesion at the glenoid rim, where the posterior capsule is stretched, and the inferior glenohumeral ligament is torn.

A bony Bankart lesion also has, as well as the soft tissue damage, a fracture of the anteroinferior glenoid rim.

Signs and Symptoms of Bankart Lesion

Symptoms of a Bankart lesion include:

  • Shoulder pain
  • a popping or crunching sound when moved
  • Limited movement
  • Instability and weakness in the joint

If the Bankart lesion is not allowed to heal properly, it can also lead to future dislocations, weakness and pain.

Causes of Bankart Lesion

A Bankart lesion is caused by an anterior dislocation to the shoulder. A Reverse Bankart lesion can also occur when the dislocation is posterior in movement. 

It can be linked to Hill-Sachs lesion, with many of those suffering from one of these lesions also having the other.
