OPEN REDUCTION OF OLD DISLOCATION OF THE HEAD OF THE HUMERUS: IMPORTANCE OF COMPLETE MOBILIZATION OF THE HEAD: A Report of Two Cases.

HOBART, MARCUS H.; GARRISON, MONROE
The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery: January 1935
Case Report

1. Many of the unsuccessful attempts at open reduction of dislocation of the head of the humerus are undoubtedly due to incomplete freeing of adhesions and only partial mobilization of the head of the bone.

2. Adequate exposure of the joint cavity and manual palpation and section of adhesions will, in the majority of cases, bring about reduction.
