Slap Tears

Biceps Tenodesis for Superior Labrum Anterior-Posterior Tear in the Overhead Athlete: A Systematic Review

Background: Superior labrum anterior-posterior (SLAP) lesion is a common shoulder injury, particularly in overhead athletes. While surgical management has traditionally consisted of SLAP repair, high rates of revision and complications have led to alternative techniques, such as biceps tenodesis (BT). While BT is commonly reserved for older nonoverhead athletes, indications for its use have expanded in recent years.

Outcomes for Arthroscopic Repair of Combined Bankart/SLAP Lesions in the Treatment of Anterior Shoulder Instability

Background: Arthroscopic repair of combined Bankart/superior labral anteroposterior (SLAP) lesions is commonly performed to treat anterior shoulder instability, the clinical outcomes of which have not been widely studied.

Return to Sport After the Surgical Treatment of Superior Labrum Anterior to Posterior Tears: A Systematic Review.

Background: Controversy exists as to the optimal treatment of superior labrum anterior to posterior (SLAP) tears in athletes. There are no systematic reviews evaluating return-to-sport (RTS) rates after arthroscopic SLAP repair and biceps tenodesis.

Trends in the Management of Isolated SLAP Tears in the United States

Background: The management of superior labrum anterior and posterior (SLAP) tears remains controversial, with surgical treatment options including SLAP repair, debridement, and open or arthroscopic biceps tenodesis (BT), based on patient factors and the type of tear.

Return to Play and Performance Perceptions of Baseball Players After Isolated SLAP Tear Repair

Background: Variable return-to-play (RTP) rates have been reported after surgical repair of superior labral anterior-posterior (SLAP) tears in baseball players. Many studies, however, have not controlled for concomitant shoulder injuries.

Type VIII SLAP Repair at Midterm Follow-Up: Throwers Have Greater Pain, Decreased Function, and Poorer Return to Play.

Purpose: To evaluate and compare midterm outcomes and return to play (RTP) of throwers and nonthrowers who underwent type VIII SLAP repair.
