Question 4#

Shoulder dislocations are frequently associated with all of the following EXCEPT:

a. Injuries to labrum
b. Humeral head fractures
c. Seizures
d. Axillary vasculature disruptions

Correct Answer is D


The shoulder is one of the most commonly dislocated joints and most dislocations are anterior. They are often associated with injuries to the labrum (Bankart lesion), impression fractures of the humeral head (Hill-Sachs lesion), and rotator cuff tears. Posterior dislocations are associated with seizures or electric shock. Adequate radiographs are required to diagnose a shoulder dislocation, with the axillary view being the most critical.
