What is a Bankart tear?

One of the most common labral injuries is known as a Bankart lesion. This condition occurs when the labrum pulls off the front of the socket. This occurs most often when the shoulder dislocates. If a Bankart tear doesn’t heal properly, it can cause future dislocations, instability, weakness and pain.

What is injured with a Bankart lesion?

A Bankart lesion is a lesion of the anterior part of the glenoid labrum of the shoulder. This injury is caused by repeated anterior shoulder subluxations. The dislocation of the shoulder joint (anterior) can damage the connective tissue ring around the glenoid labrum.

How is a Bankart tear diagnosed?

A diagnosis of Bankart lesion is usually confirmed intra-operatively during shoulder arthroscopy. A prospective study by Walsworth et al. found that a history of “popping” or “catching” in combination with positive findings on physical examination were highly suggestive of a labral tear (4).

What is the CPT code for Bankart repair?

Is a SLAP tear the same as a labrum tear?

Superior Labrum, Anterior to Posterior tears (SLAP tears), also known as labrum tears, represent 4% to 8% of all shoulder injuries. The L in SLAP refers to your glenoid labrum. Your labrum plays two important roles in keeping your shoulder functioning and pain free.

What is a labrum tear in your shoulder?

The labrum is a piece of fibrocartilage (rubbery tissue) attached to the rim of the shoulder socket that helps keep the ball of the joint in place. When this cartilage is torn, it is called a labral tear. Labral tears may result from injury, or sometimes as part of the aging process.

Is a SLAP tear a labrum tear?

A SLAP tear is an injury to the labrum of the shoulder, which is the ring of cartilage that surrounds the socket of the shoulder joint.

What is the difference between a Bankart lesion and a SLAP tear?

A SLAP (Superior Labrum Anterior to Posterior) tear, a specific type of labral tear, involves the attachment site of the biceps tendon located at the top of the shoulder joint. A Bankart tear describes a torn labrum where the humeral head shifts toward the front of the body, as an anterior labral tear.

What is a reverse Bankart tear?

Reverse Bankart lesion is defined as the detachment of posteroinferior labrum with avulsion of posterior capsular periosteum. This leads to laxity of the posterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligament with posterior displacement of the humeral head.

How long does it take for a Bankart tear to heal?

It is usually estimated that it will take at least 4-6 months to feel as though you have completely regained the use of your arm. Some cases may take as long as 9-12 months to make a full recovery.

What is the ICD 10 code for Bankart tear?

A Bankart tear is one that occurs below the middle of the socket involving the inferior glenohumeral ligament. The diagnostic code for a SLAP lesion is 840.7. There is no specific index entry for ‘Bankart’ in the alphabetic index, either alone or under ‘lesion’ or ‘tear’.

A Bankart tear is a specific injury to a part of the shoulder joint called the labrum. The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint, similar to the hip; however, the socket of the shoulder joint is extremely shallow, and thus inherently unstable.

What are the symptoms of a Bankart tear in the shoulder?

Typical symptoms of a Bankart tear include: a sense of instability or giving out of the shoulder. repeat dislocations, often occurring more easily over time. catching sensations in the shoulder joint. aching of the shoulder and upper arm.

Can a 30 year old have a Bankart tear?

Diagnosis of a Bankart Tear. Most young patients (under the age of 30) who sustain a shoulder dislocation will sustain a Bankart tear; therefore, there is a high suspicion of this injury whenever a young patient dislocates their shoulder.
