Background: Superior labrum tears extending from anterior to posterior (SLAP lesion) are a trigger of serious shoulder ache and incapacity. Administration for these lesions just isn’t standardized. There aren’t any clear pointers for surgical versus non-surgical therapy, and if surgical procedure is pursued there are controversies relating to SLAP restore versus biceps tenotomy/tenodesis.
Goal: This paper goals to briefly overview the anatomy, classification, mechanisms of damage, and prognosis of SLAP lesions. Moreover, we are going to describe our therapy protocol for Kind II SLAP lesions based mostly on three teams of sufferers: throwing athletes, non-throwing athletes, and all different Kind II SLAP lesions.
Conclusion: The administration of SLAP lesions may be divided into four broad classes: (1) nonoperative administration that features scapular train, restoration of balanced musculature, and that might be anticipated to supply symptom aid in 2/three of all sufferers; (2) sufferers with a transparent traumatic episode and signs of instability that ought to bear SLAP restore with out (age < 40) or with (age > 40) biceps tenotomy or tenodesis; (three) sufferers with etiology of overuse with out instability signs must be managed by biceps tenotomy or tenodesis; and (four) throwing athletes that must be in their very own class and preferentially managed with rigorous bodily remedy centered on hip, core, and scapular train along with restoration of shoulder movement and rotator cuff steadiness. Peel-back SLAP restore, Posterior Inferior Glenohumeral Ligament (PIGHL) launch, and therapy of the partial infraspinatus tear with debridement, PRP, or (hardly ever) restore must be reserved for many who fail this rehabilitation program.
