INTRODUCTION: Standard rehabilitation regime following hemiarthroplasty for trauma is early mobilisation to prevent the development of a stiff shoulder. However, an aggressive early rehabilitation may lead to non-union of the greater tuberosity. We hypothesise that a delayed rehabilitation will result in a good union rate without undue risk of shoulder ...

The treatment of recurrent anterior shoulder dislocation in patients who failed a supervised rehabilitation program is operative stabilization. Anatomical repair addressing the underlying pathology is the preferred method. We hypothesize that Bristow-Latarjet procedure is effective in all types of traumatic recurrent anterior shoulder dislocations, although in cases with Bankart lesion, ...
