The Buford complex is characterised by the complete absence of labral tissue at the anterosuperior aspect of the labrum (1 to 3 o'clock), in conjunction with a cord-like middle glenohumeral ligament (MGHL) which attaches to the superior part of the labrum at the base of the biceps (Rao et al 2003).

Humeral avulsion of glenohumeral ligaments (HAGL) lesions are another known cause of anterior shoulder instability.

This variation differs from a Buford complex, which is an absent anterosuperior labrum in combination with a cord-like middle glenohumeral ligament.
They also found that a SLAP lesion places increased strain on the inferior glenohumeral ligament, which could theoretically lead to damage of the ligament and subsequent anterior instability.
In the abducted and externally rotated position, the long head of the biceps limits anterior translation of the humeral head, acts as a restraint to excess external rotation, and alleviates strain on the inferior glenohumeral ligament.
This complex consists of a cordlike middle glenohumeral ligament that attaches to the base of the biceps anchor, along with the absence of labral tissue on the anterior superior glenoid.
In Type I, the glenoid labrum and inferior glenohumeral ligament (IGHL) complex is normal.
