Humeral avulsion of the glenohumeral ligament (HAGL) is an uncommon, although perhaps under-recognized, finding associated with anterior dislocation of the shoulder.
Next, the clever hook was passed through the inferior glenohumeral ligament (IGHL) and used to retrieve the free suture end and withdraw it out of the cannula.
The close relationship between the labrum, biceps tendon and glenohumeral ligaments, described as a "basket of fibres" (Davidson and Rivenburgh 2004), makes it difficult to differentiate between symptoms emanating from one or the other, based on clinical examination.

It can be performed with the patient standing, sitting, or supine, and the test places the anterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligament (IGHL) and anterior capsule under stress (Fig.

anterior instability may be created with release of the associated glenohumeral ligaments.
The static stabilizers of the joint include the capsule, the glenohumeral ligaments, the labrum, negative pressure within the joint capsule, and the bony congruity of the joint.
