Technique-SLAP Surgical Techniques

Surgical treatment of symptomatic SLAP lesions consists of shoulder arthroscopy, which frequently demonstrates a positive “drive-through” sign, a displaceable biceps vertex and, in up to 60% of cases, associated rotator cuff pathology, mostly partial-thickness undersurface tears.

If the biceps-labral anchor is avulsed, it is partially debrided and secured back to the glenoid with suture anchors or tacks, followed by a post-operative rehabilitation program for posterior capsular stretching. If small tearing and fraying is present, but no true avulsion of the anchor, a simple labral debridement is performed
