A Bankart lesion results from detachment of the anterior inferior labrum from the underlying glenoid, and is usually as a result of previous anterior shoulder dislocation, and are associated with matching humeral lesion: the Hill-Sachs defect.
It may be labral only, or involve the bony margin (impaction fracture) = bony Bankart. Additionally, labral tears may also be present.
Bankart lesions do heal, and therefore early surgical intervention (if any) is not required.
A number of lesions are closely related have similar appearances: see anterior glenohumeral injury for discussion of the differences.
It is named after Arthur Sydney Blundell Bankart, British orthopedic surgeon
