A Bankart lesion is a tear of the labrum of the shoulder. When a shoulder dislocates, the labrum will often tear. Because the torn labrum, or Bankart lesion, helps to stabilize the shoulder, after injury the shoulder may be prone to repeat dislocation.

SLAP Tear
A SLAP tear of the shoulder is an injury to the labrum of the shoulder joint. SLAP tears typically cause pain when performing overhead activities, such as throwing a ball. Treatment of a SLAP tear may require surgery.
