<p>It's not a loose anchor.</p>
<p>Squeaking is caused by the knots in the sutures that can rotate from being outside the labrum to being on the face of the glenoid/socket. They squeak against the cartilage.</p>
<p>Knotless anchors are now available that avoid this issue, but that doesn't help you now.</p>
<p>Your problem is probably not harming your shoulder, but if it bothers you, it is a very small arthroscopy to take the sutures out.</p>

<p>I am wondering if anyone has experienced having a loose anchor following labral repair surgery. &#160;I'm nearly 8 years post-op and, at times, when I move my shoulder there is an audible squeaking noise much like a squeaky door hinge. I don't have consistent pain and when I do it's very minimal. &#160;</p>
<p>My ortho thinks it may be a loose anchor. &#160;Has anyone had this experience?</p>
