When the shoulder joint is dislocated (luxation) due to a traumatic injury, the anterior labrum can tear off. This thin rim of connective tissue is of vital importance to the stability of the shoulder joint. If the joint capsule is still firm, the labrum can be reattached arthroscopically and thereby avoid future luxations.
