Reverse Bankart’s & Hillsach’s Lesions


Reverse Hill-Sachs lesion, also called a McLaughlin lesion, is defined as an impaction fracture of anteromedial aspect of the humeral head following posterior dislocation of the humerus.

It is of surgical importance to identify this lesion and correct it to prevent avascular necrosis.

Reverse Bankart lesion is defined as the detachment of posteroinferior labrum with avulsion of posterior capsular periosteum.

This leads to laxity of posterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligament with posterior displacement of the humerus head.
