Other bankart variants found in the study were perthes lesion in 2 patients, GLAD, ALPSA and GLOM in 1 patient each.
Amongst the anteroinferior labral injuries in the study, classic bankarts was found in 9 patients, perthes lesion in 2 patients and ALPSA, GLAD and GLOM in one patient each.
A Perthes lesion is another Bankart variant in which there is an incomplete avulsion of the anteroinferior labrum with a medially stripped but intact periosteum.
In this injury, the torn labrum remains attached to the anterior scapular periosteum as is in the Perthes lesion; however, there is the addition of an articular cartilage injury.
Bankart lesions are also characterized by disruption of the anterior scapular periosteum; a feature that distinguishes them from Perthes lesions. Perthes lesions are seen as a gap between the labrum and the glenoid with an intact periosteal sleeve (Figure 8).
