The purpose of this study is to investigate the accompanying lesions of humerus greater tuberosity fracture with anterior shoulder dislocation and to analyze its clinical results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From May 2005 to November 2008, arthroscopy was performed on a total of 30 selected patients who were diagnosed with humerus greater tuberosity fracture with anterior shoulder dislocation and who were also under the age of 40. The preoperative and postoperative Constant and Rowe scores were compared.
There was a total of 21 cases of anteroinferior labral lesions: 2 Bankart lesions, 4 bony Bankart lesions, 4 Perthes lesions, 2 free ALPSA lesions, 3 GLAD lesions and 6 capsular tears. For other lesions, 5 rotator cuff partial tears, 3 SLAP lesions and 1 biceps tendon rupture were found. The constant scores were increased from 56.3 to 94.43 points (p=0.034), and the Rowe scores were increased from 52.56 to 91.76 points (p=0.026).
For humerus greater tuberosity fracture with anterior shoulder dislocation, the accompanying lesion was identified and the fracture was treated using arthroscopy. Good clinical results and bone union were achieved. According to the secondary arthroscopic findings, all of the Perthes lesion, the free ALPSA lesion, the GLAD lesion and the capsular tear spontaneously healed or they did not progress to extended rupture although arthroscopic suture was not performed. Any postoperative secondary instability was not observed.
