Resumo

LAUBSCHER, PH; COLLIN, PG  e  GAIN, SMA. Complicated shoulder dislocation in the elderly patient. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.1, pp. 72-77. ISSN 2309-8309.

Anterior shoulder dislocation in the elderly patient is an injury that is often neglected. Because people are retiring early and living longer than previous generations, the demands for good function remain high despite an increased age. We report on the case of a 66 year-old male patient who had sustained a right anterior shoulder dislocation, greater tuberosity fracture and brachial plexus traction injury. An aggressive approach was followed which led to a satisfactory outcome. We also review opinions expressed in literature on the management of injuries associated with shoulder dislocation in the elderly.
