Reverse Bankart lesion

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 humeral head.

As is the case with a Bankart lesion, the trauma may be severe enough to involve the bony glenoid, resulting in an accompanying small flake fracture.
