The Problem

 A 60 yr old woman fell from the stairs

 Severe rt shoulder pain
 Patient supported Rt elbow joint with the Lft
 O/E Rt shoulder showed loss of normal
rounded contour
 Attempt to move the shoulder joint was
 A Diagnosis of Dislocation of Shoulder
joint was made
Bones taking part in the
formation of Shoulder Joint
 Scapula (Glenoid fossa)
 Humerus (Head)
Ligaments attached to the
Shoulder Joint
 Articular Capsule
 Glenohumeral Ligaments (3
supplemental bands)
 Coracohumeral Ligament
 Transverse humeral Ligament
 Glenoidal Labrum
Muscles of the Shoulder
 Supraspinatus
 Infraspinatus
 Teres minor
 Subscapularis
 Teres major
 Deltoid

Dislocation of a Joint
 Also called Luxation, it occurs when
bones in a joint become displaced or
 Often caused by sudden impact to
the joint
 Damage to Ligaments
The Commonest type of Dislocation of
the Shoulder joint is Inferior
Dislocation as the Joint is least
supported in the area
Results due to severe hyperabduction
of arm resulting in impingement of
humeral head against acromion

Humeral articular surface faces
