Pathogenetic Approach to Treatment of Conservatively Irreducible Anterior Shoulder Dislocation


Approaches to the treatment of conservatively irreducible fresh anterior shoulder dislocations were considered. Experience in treatment of 5 patients with such injuries was presented. In case of deep impression of humeral head with its inclination into the anterior edge of the scapular glenoid cavity the authors used elaborated by them extension method of reduction that enabled to refusing the conventional step-by-step technique of irreducible dislocation treatment, to perform successful closed reduction in 3 out of 5 patients and to shorten the duration of treatment considerably.
