Bankart repair

Bankart repair
ICD-9-CM 81.82

A Bankart repair is an operation for habitual anterior shoulder dislocation.[1] The joint capsule is sewed to the detached glenoid labrum, without duplication of the subscapularis tendon.

The procedure is named for the Bankart lesion, a common name for the condition it addresses. The condition was named for British surgeon Arthur Sydney Blundell Bankart, who first described it in the British Medical Journal in 1923.[2]
