The basic procedure is as follows.
Following inspection and determination of the extent of the injury the basic labrum repair, be it SLAP or Bankart lesion 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. A severe tear involving both SLAP and Bankart lesions may require seven anchors. Simple tears may only require one.
The glenoid is drilled for the anchor implantation.
The 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.
