Type II SLAP lesion

Recommended Posts

So i had a friend that had some shoulder pain and had an mri arthrogram report come back as follows . . .

 

There is a type II SLAP lesion w linear contrast extending into the substance of the superior labrum. The tear extends from anterior to posterior w undermining of the long head biceps anchor and extends in an anterior direction towards the 3 o'clock position along the anterior glenoid margin.

 

Any thoughts? He said the Dr that ordered the mri injected Kenalog. Think surgery be needed?

It's basically what connects the bicep to the shoulder socket. I have one in my left shoulder. Most of the time it doesn't bother me but I have some range limits and over use causes some ache.

Surgery for this problem has turned out to be almost as effective as nonsurgical treatment. I haven't operated on one since 2007.
