Bankart lesion

Case contributed by Dr David Cuete


history of anterior shoulder dislocation

Patient Data

Age: 25
Gender: Male

CT shoulder

Computed tomography demonstrated a fracture of the anterior and inferior aspect of the glenoid rim, displaced fragments are identified. 

Case Discussion

Bony Bankart lesions occur when some of the glenoid bone is broken off with the anterior labrum. This leads to loss of the normal bumper  (labrum) and also loss of bone, making the shoulder joint potentially more unstable than a Bankart tear alone.
