With the increasing use of arthroscopy and MRI for the diagnosis of shoulder problems, SLAP (superior labrum from anterior to posterior) lesions are more commonly diagnosed, and the incidence of SLAP repair surgery is increasing. Clinical diagnosis of SLAP is difficult to achieve, and many specific physical exam maneuvers have been described. However, neither these exam maneuvers nor history can provide a definitive diagnosis of a SLAP lesion. Despite this limitation, it is helpful to establish a more precise and accurate examination and to construct a preoperative plan. The purpose of this article is to review the original descriptions for specific physical exam maneuvers in SLAP, along with statistical analysis where available. This will help clinicians in deciding which tests are useful, how they should be implemented, and how to interpret the results.
Key Words: SLAP lesion; Physical examination
