Shoulder SLAP Lesion - Dubai Shoulder Clinic 

 The Shoulder SLAP Lesion (superior-labrum-Anterior-posterior) lesion is the avulsion of the biceps tendon origin from the superior labrum which is usually attached to the upper part of the glenoid fossa (shoulder Joint socket). This can happen as a result of a violent above-head movement or weight lifting and can be associated with shoulder dislocation.

This avulsion from the labrum is usually treated conservatively in an arm sling and painkillers and mostly heals within a few weeks, unless the tear is significant, in which case it will lead to ongoing pain and a possible instability, and secondary impingement in the shoulder joint. 

SLAP lesion can vary in type and has a specific classification depending on the severity and the exact location of the tear. The classification is usually done during the operative Arthroscopic procedure.

Surgical treatment of SLAP lesion is usually carried out during shoulder arthroscopy by either debridement of the tear or repair using the anchor sutures technique.
