Bucket-handle tear.: A type III SLAP lesion consists of a bucket-handle tear of the cartilage around the shoulder socket &#40;glenoid labrum&#41; with an intact biceps tendon. This type of labral lesion is stable and usually treated by arthroscopic debridement, although you may need capsular tightening due to the repetitive strain on your shoulder capsule. Your surgeon will be able to answer your questions more specifically.
