Abstract
PURPOSE
Labral lesions and its anatomic variants have been studied by several authors in the last decade. Buford complex and sublabral recess are most common variants. Their recognition is important in order to distinguish them from superior and anterior labral tear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report one case of a 19-year-old female who was mistaken SLAP lesion for normal variant and was treated with arthroscopic surgery.
RESULTS
The arthroscopic finding shows rare normal variant of biceps anchor and superior labrum. The biceps long head tendon was inserted at superior labrum and supraspinatus tendon area. This finding was mistaken to SLAP lesion.
CONCLUSION
We report rare normal variant of biceps anchor and superior labrum that was observed during arthroscopic surgery for SLAP lesion.
Key Words: Shoulder joint; Superior labrum; Biceps anchor; Normal variant
