Bankart lesion

The glenoid labrum, labeled glenoid ligament, is damaged in a Bankart lesion. Lateral view demonstrating the articular surface of the right scapula is shown.

A Bankart lesion is an injury of the anterior (inferior) glenoid labrum of the shoulder due to anterior shoulder dislocation.[1] When this happens, a pocket at the front of the glenoid forms that allows the humeral head to dislocate into it. It is an indication for surgery and often accompanied by a Hill-Sachs lesion, damage to the posterior humeral head.[2]

The Bankart lesion is named after English orthopedic surgeon Arthur Sydney Blundell Bankart (1879 – 1951) [3]

A bony bankart is a Bankart lesion that includes a fracture in of the anterior-inferior glenoid cavity of the scapula bone.[4]
