When the damage only involves the labrum it is called a Bankart lesion. A Hill- Sachs lesion occurs when the lesion to the labrum presents simultaneously with a. There are two types of labral tears: SLAP tears and Bankart lesions. On MR a Hill-Sachs defect is seen at or above the level of the coracoid. Horst and his colleagues also found that a larger Hill-Sachs lesion leads to greater . Burkhart and de Beer first described the concept of engaging vs. . Bankart repair and remplissage for a large engaging Hill-Sachs lesion.

Specific functional tests employed include the apprehension test, relocation test and sulcus sign. A Hill-Sachs lesion is an injury that hill secondary to an anterior shoulder dislocation.

Inthey published a report of cases of shoulder dislocation and showed that the defect resulted from direct compression of the humeral head. The results showed that 3D-CT osseous reconstructions were equivalent to 3D-MR osseous reconstructions, and the measurement differences were found to be statistically insignificant.

A comparison of the spectrum of intra-articular lesions in acute and chronic anterior shoulder instability. The glenoid track concept refers to the area of the glenoid that is covered as the arm shifts during a movement of abduction and external rotation from lesionn inferomedial to the superolateral portion of the humeral head [ 10 ].

Hill–Sachs lesion

Several studies have shown that when the number of dislocations increases, the incidence and size of Hill-Sachs lesion also increases.

Hill-Sachs lesion HSL located medially: The red arrow points to the absent labrum – Buford complex. Such lesions can be associated with axillary nerve injury and various fractures to the humeral head and bone. Assessment of coincidence and defect sizes in Bankart and Hill-Sachs lesions after anterior shoulder dislocation: This instability can be managed conservatively in a mastersling for immobilization for weeks, before starting with rehabilitation see “Physiotherapy management” later on.


Notice the abnormal contour of the anterior glenoid and the avulsed anterior rim arrow. Bankart fracture This is a post-reduction view. Location of the glenoid defect in shoulders with recurrent anterior dislocation. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or sacns keyboard arrow keys.

Risk factors associated with intraoperative complications in primary shoulder arthroplasty.

Hill-Sachs remplissage, an arthroscopic solution for the engaging Hill-Sachs lesion: These findings clearly tell us that the glenoid bony defect is related to the mid-range instability, not to the bankarh instability. There are two methods to assess the risk of HSL. Support Radiopaedia and see fewer ads. Posterior pillar often associated with dislocation of the hip including the weight bearing part of joint.

Some reported that it was sufficient to fix a fragment back to the glenoid even though the fragment size was much smaller than the size of the glenoid defect.

The higher angle caused from the arm being in abduction resulted in a more slanted lesion with respect to the longitudinal axis of the humerus, which led to a higher degree of engagement and subsequent shoulder instability Fig.

Bankart lesion and Hill-Sachs lesion

However, if it is out of the glenoid coverage, it may engage with the anterior rim of the glenoid and cause a dislocation Fig. The anterior labrum is absent on the glenoid rim. Reverse Bankart Detachment of the posteroinferior labrum o’clock with tearing of the posterior scapular periosteum with or without an osseus fragment of the glenoid.

A constrained articular surface. However, due to the lezion tilt of the scapula, the lesioh of humeral head dislocation relative to the scapula was almost anterior 3: Recurrent dislocations become problematic because the anatomical glenohumeral constraints become increasingly worn down, leading to chronic instability [ 5 ]. Quantification of a glenoid defect with three-dimensional computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging: Oftentimes, it is sufficient to solely address the glenoid bone loss by increasing the articular arc to prevent engagement, or to repair the Bankart lesion to decrease the humeral head excursion.


Surgery of the Musculoskeletal System. Generally, AP radiographs of the shoulder with the arm leslon internal rotation offer the best yield while axillary views and AP radiographs with external rotation tend to obscure the defect.

Zajac2 and Matthew T. Assessment of the glenoid defect There hilll various methods of assessing the bony defect of the glenoid, such as radiography, 15 – 17 CT, 18 3D CT, 19 MRI 20 and arthroscopy.

Shoulder MR – Instability

Their technique still utilizes the double pulley technique, but they conducted a percutaneous placement of the two suture anchors in the single skin-and-deltoid incision. The glenoid socket is twice as deep in the superior-inferior direction as in the anteroposterior AP direction. Sports, falls, seizures, assaults, throwing, reaching, pulling on the arm, or turning over in bed can all be causes of anterior dislocation.

A Bankart tear can extend to the o’clock position, but then there should also be a tear in the o’clock position. The tight capsulo-ligamentous structure functions as a stabiliser of the humeral head in the direction of the tight capsule. Pain and a catching sensation with shoulder subluxation are also frequently described.

The lesions vary in depth, width, and orientation, and each different presentation has to be treated in a unique manner.

Primary partial humeral head resurfacing: There have been previous studies showing that MRI is capable of quantifying bone loss, but there has been no proof that it should be preferred over 3D-CT [ 2930 ]. Anterior shoulder instability, specifically the Hill-Sachs lesion, is an area of orthopedic study that is highly active and constantly producing new studies in an attempt of gaining the best outcomes for patients.
