Best Answer

The glenoid labrum is a fibrous ring that helps hold the upper arm bone (humerus) in the glenoid fossa; a shallow socket in the shoulder blade (scapula). The prominence inferior refers to the lower part of that ring. Usually when people talk about the glenoid labrum they are discussing a dislocated shoulder.
