A SLAP tear or SLAP lesion is an injury to the glenoid labrum. Unfortunately few with SLAP lesion injuries return to full capability without surgical intervention. In some, physical therapy can strengthen the supporting muscles in the shoulder joint to the point of reestablishing stability. Following inspection and determination of the extent of injury, the basic labrum repair is as follows. The glenoid and labrum are roughened to increase contact surface area and promote re-growth. Locations for the bone anchors are selected based on number and severity of tear. The glenoid is drilled for the anchor implantation. Then anchors are inserted in the glenoid. The suture component of the implant is tied through the labrum and knotted such that the labrum is in tight contact with the glenoid surface. All Island Orthopedics in Astoria and Bayside, are specializing in SLAP tear injuries. If you feel pain or discomfort in your shoulder, please schedule an appointment with us in order for us to provide a diagnosis.
