Anterior Glenoid Perforation with Suture Anchor Causing Subscapularis Irritation and Pain
Labral repair has become a common and routine procedure, but complications can occur. We report a new complication related to osseous penetration of the anterior glenoid neck of the scapula by a suture anchor. We identified the complication using magnetic resonance imaging, an important part in reproducible, noninvasive, and objective assessment of the postoperative shoulder. We also present the technique for anchor removal used to resolve the patient's anterior shoulder pain.
