The radiographs of 115 anterior shoulder dislocations (100 patients; 74 males, 26 females, mean age 35 ± 18 years) were reviewed to assess the radiographic views used in the management of this dislocation. Eighty-eight patients (88%) had only the anteroposterior (AP) view , 10 patients had 2 radiographic views taken and only 2 patients had three radiographic views.
Hill-Sachs Lesions were found in 18%, asociated with glenoid rim fractures in 3%(Bankart’s Lesion) of the patients. A greater tuberosity fracture was found in 18% of the patients.
Therefore, the current practice in the management of an acute anterior shoulder dislocation appears to be to perform a single view (AP) pre-reduction radiograph to confirm the diagnosis and a single view (AP) post reduction radiograph to confirm reduction after a close manipulative reduction has been performed. This practice is likely to result in an underestimate of associated Hill Sachs Lesion,Bankart’s Lesion and glenoid rim fractures , but not greater tuberosity fractures.

Anterior / Posterior Dislocation of The Shoulder
A shoulder dislocation occurs when the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) pops out of the shallow shoulder socket of the scapula (called the glenoid). This can happen when a strong force pulls the shoulder upward or outward, or from an extreme external rotation of the humerus.
Glenohumeral dislocations are generally classified by the direction of dislocation of the humerus.( Anterior / Posterior-Seizure/Intense elctrical shock)
Dislocation can be full or partial, partial dislocation (also called subluxation)—the head of the humerus slips out of the socket momentarily and then snaps back into place.Full dislocation—the head of the humerus comes completely out of the socket
Shoulder dislocations can also be associated with fractures—one can have a fracture and dislocation at the same time. Nerves and blood vessels can sometimes be injured with a severe shoulder dislocation, requiring immediate medical attention.

Anterior / Posterior Dislocation of The Shoulder (GH Joint)
Is a specific injury to a part of the shoulder joint called the labrum (a cuff of cartilage that forms a cup for the end of the arm bone (humerus) to move within) When the labrum of the shoulder joint is torn, the stability of the shoulder joint is compromised. A specific type of labral tear is called a Bankart lesion, and is due to dislocation of the shoulder causing the tear.
Hill Sach’s (Bone Lesion)
Is an injury that causes damage to the head of the humerus (arm bone).When the shoulder dislocates, the smooth cartilage surface of the humerus hits against the rim of the scapula (glenoid). The Hill-Sachs injury is caused when the humeral head is impinged against the glenoid of the shoulder joint.
