Today’s aim, however, is to restore durable hyaline cartilage through a practical and minimally invasive approach (preferably arthroscopic), that is associated with minimal […]

Key Points

Full-thickness articular cartilage defects have a limited capacity to heal. Thus, articular cartilage lesions and osteochondral defects in any joint present a challenging problem. Cartilage lesions are less likely to be seen in the glenohumeral joint than in the knee, therefore there has not been extensive research on shoulder cartilage repair. Making the […]

Glenoid Labrum

The glenoid labrum provides another static restraint to GH motion. The labrum is a fibrous ring attached to the glenoid articular surface through a fibrocartilagenous transition zone. The labrum functions as an anchor point for the GH ligaments and the biceps tendon; it also deepens the glenoid socket and enhances stability.

This wedge-shaped, fibrous structure […]
