Open reduction surgery for anterior dislocation of the shoulder combined with surgical neck fracture of humerus of badminton athletes

Objective: The study aims to explore the clinical effect of open reduction surgery for anterior dislocation of the shoulder combined with surgical neck fracture of humerus of badminton athletes.

Methods: Clinical data of 2000 patients with anterior dislocation of the shoulder combined with surgical neck fracture of humerus admitted in our hospital from June 2012 to June 2014 were analyzed retrospectively. All the patients were badminton athletes. Our clinical staff adopted open reduction surgery for the 2000 patients with anterior dislocation of the shoulder combined with surgical neck fracture of humerus. The patients’ treatment method, recovery and treatment effect were analyzed to sum up the clinical treatment experience.

Results: All the 2000 patients included in the clinical study were treated with open reduction surgery. All the operations were successful. The healing time of the fracture end was 6 weeks to 10 weeks, with average healing time at (8.04 ± 0.15) weeks. The patients were followed up for two years after the operation. 1700 cases have excellent shoulder joint function recovery, 250 cases have good recovery, while the remaining 50 cases have poor recovery, with excellent rate at 97.50%.

Conclusion: Open reduction surgery enjoys very significant curative effect in treatment of anterior dislocation of the shoulder combined with surgical neck fracture of humerus. After the surgery, the patients had good shoulder recovery, with low probability of complications. Thus, this surgical method can serve as the preferred treatment method for treatment of anterior shoulder dislocation combined with surgical neck fracture of humerus.
