Variability of Glenoid Labral Tear Patterns: A Study of 280 Sequential Surgical Cases.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2021 May 18. Epub 2021 May 18.

Peachtree Orthopaedics, Atlanta, GA, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Glenoid labrum tears are a common cause of shoulder pain and instability and tear patterns have historically been ascribed into categorical descriptions such as anterior, posterior, and superior labral tears (SLAP) with multiple sub-types. Although often quoted as representing no more than 10% of instabilities, posterior shoulder instability may be more common than previously recognized. The purpose of this study was to review observed labral tear patterns and compare incidence and morphologies to historical descriptions. Read More

Shoulder biomechanics in normal and selected pathological conditions.

EFORT Open Rev 2020 Aug 10;5(8):508-518. Epub 2020 Sep 10.

Division of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, La Tour Hospital, Meyrin, Switzerland.

The stability of the glenohumeral joint depends on soft tissue stabilizers, bone morphology and dynamic stabilizers such as the rotator cuff and long head of the biceps tendon. Shoulder stabilization techniques include anatomic procedures such as repair of the labrum or restoration of bone loss, but also non-anatomic options such as remplissage or tendon transfers.Rotator cuff repair should restore the cuff anatomy, reattach the rotator cable and respect the coracoacromial arch whenever possible.
