Abstract

Anterior shoulder dislocation (ASD) is a common injury of young population which may progress to recurrent episodes. The treatment is initially conservative but surgery is indicated when it fails. Out of more than 150 techniques, modified Bristow-Latarjet procedure has become most favorable even to arthroscopic techniques. We have intended to retrospectively assess the outcome of it in post-traumatic recurrent ASD of young non-athletes, performed at our different private settings between January 2007 and July 2012; which included 15 male patients of 20-39 years with minimum 2 years follow up. Clinical, functional, radiological and overall outcome status were evaluated. There was significant improvement of shoulder stability (p<0.05, chi-square test) despite significant deterioration (p<0.05, paired t-test) of external rotation (21.67°±00.61° loss). The patient self assessed pain and instability had highly significant (p<0.001, paired t-test) and all components of activities of daily living (except above shoulder weight carrying and overhead throwing) had significant improvement (p<0.05, paired t-test). Despite of intra-operative difficulties, radiological transplant errors (33.33%) and post-operative complications (06.67%), overall satisfactory outcome (86.67%) had been significant (p<0.05, chi-square test).
