After an acute glenohumeral dislocation, the glenoid labrum and the ligaments attached to it may avulse from their bony attachments. Alternatively, in cases of chronic instability/MDI, the labrum and surrounding ligaments may be stretched to the point where they no longer support the glenohumeral joint. SLAP tears resulting in chronic pain and dysfunction, particularly in athletes, can also be addressed through arthroscopic labral surgery. In any scenario, the labrum/ligaments can be secured back to their attachments (either glenoid or humerus) by a series of sutures/suture anchors (knot-tying or knotless) resulting in normal shoulder function.
