In 1984 Andrews described tears of the glenoid labrum in 73 overhead athletes.1 In 1990 Snyder et al. described a pattern of injury to the superior labrum beginning posteriorly and extending anteriorly and introduced the term SLAP (superior labrum anterior and posterior) lesion.2 The understanding of SLAP injuries has led to the evolution of their treatment.
