Book Chapter - Jan 1, 2021

Postoperative shoulder: Normal postoperative MRI findings after rotator cuff repair in sportive patients include increased signal of the rotator cuff tendons and peribursal soft tissues on fluid-sensitive sequences as well as small dehiscences of the rotator cuff tendons. The postoperative glenoid labrum may be rounded or even slightly frayed after Bankart repair; however, the labrum should be closely attached to the underlying glenoid without undercutting joint fluid or contrast medium (so-called watertight labrum).
