The labrum is the cartilage that surrounds the glenoid (socket) and increases its depth and therefore shoulder stability.  An anterior superior (SLAP) tear of the labrum is frequently seen in throwers and other overhead athletes and can cause pain with activity.  Arthroscopic surgery is frequently needed to reattach the torn labrum.
