This study compared the SLAP lesions caused by a sports-induced injury with those caused by a nonsports-induced injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was performed on 54 patients who had undergone arthroscopic surgery for a SLAP lesion. There were 21 sports-induced-injury patients (group I) and 36 non-sports-induced injury patients (group II). The mean age of the men was 36 years and that of the women was 48 years. In both groups, the frequency of a concomitant injury and the clinical outcomes at the last follow-up was evaluated using the UCLA score, Rowe score, and the ASES score.
According to their injury mechanism, , there were 14 cases (67%) of repeated microtrauma injury in group I and 25 cases (75%) of compression injury type in group II. As a concomitant pathology, there was 11 cases of shoulder instability and 5 cases of a rotator cuff tear in group I, and 23 cases of rotator cuff tears and 14 cases of shoulder instability in group II. At the last follow up, group I showed slightly better clinical satisfaction (P>0.05).
The possibility of a SLAP lesion accompanying other diseases is high. Therefore, an accurate assessment of concomitant injury lesions before surgery is important for the treatment outcome.
Key Words: SLAP (Superior labral anterior posterior) lesion; Sports-induced injury; Non-sports-induced injury; Concomitant injury
