The aim of this study is to determine the diagnostic performance of Magnetic Resonance Arthrography (MRA) in evaluating lesions of the glenoid labrum, in young active patients with chronic unstable shoulder, compared to shoulder arthroscopy. We retrospectively considered 65 MRA examinations, performed between December 2011 and January 2018. Among them, thirty-five patients (31 men, 4 women; mean age, 27.3 years; range, 16-53 years; 4 patients with a previous arthroscopy of the same shoulder) underwent shoulder arthroscopy after MRA. Arthroscopic reports were collected and analyzed for the correlation with MRA results.
