Iapyx

In Greek and Roman mythology, Iapux or Iapis was a favorite of Apollo. The god wanted to confer upon him the gift of prophecy, the lyre, etc.. Virgil's Aeneid relates that Iapyx was Aeneas's healer during the Trojan War and escaped to Italy after the war, founding Apulia, his descent is unclear. He was either: a son of Iasus, or the son of Lycaon, which would make him the brother of Daunius and Peucetius, or a Cretan, from whom the Cretans who migrated to Italy derived the name of Iapyges, ora son of Daedalus either: by his wife, thus making him a full-brother of Icarus. Iapyx is the name of a minor Greek wind god, the north-west or west-north-west wind. Virgil relates this Iapyx to the wind that carried the fleeing Cleopatra home to Egypt after her loss at the battle of Actium

Bankart lesion

A Bankart lesion is an injury of the anterior glenoid labrum of the shoulder due to anterior shoulder dislocation. When this happens, a pocket at the front of the glenoid forms that allows the humeral head to dislocate into it, it is an indication for surgery and accompanied by a Hill-Sachs lesion, damage to the posterior humeral head. The Bankart lesion is named after English orthopedic surgeon Arthur Sydney Blundell Bankart. A bony Bankart is a Bankart lesion that includes a fracture of the anterior-inferior glenoid cavity of the scapula bone; the diagnosis is initially made by a combination of physical exam and medical imaging, where the latter may be projectional radiography and/or MRI of the shoulder. The presence of intra-articular contrast allows for better evaluation of the glenoid labrum. Type V SLAP tears extends into the Bankart defect. Arthroscopic repair of Bankart injuries have good success rates, though nearly one-third of patients require further surgery for continued instability after the initial procedure in a study of young adults, with higher re-operation rates in those less than 20 years of age.

Options for repair include an arthroscopic technique or a more invasive open Latarjet procedure, with the open technique tending to have a lower incidence of recurrent dislocation, but a reduced range of motion following surgery.
