  • Hill-Sachs Lesion Injury and Deformity

    A Hill-Sachs injury to the shoulder can occur due to a shoulder dislocation, resulting in a Hill-Sachs lesion or a Hill-Sachs deformity of the head of the humerus bone (the upper arm bone).As the bones in the shoulder joint dislocate, the round humeral head (the ball on the top of the arm bone) can strike the edge of the glenoid bone (the socket) with force. This creates a compression fracture in the humeral head. A small divot in the bone is often seen on MRI, and larger Hill-Sachs injuries may also be seen on an X-ray.

  • Marijuana Users More Prone to Infections After Knee, Shoulder Surgeries

    Surgeons have long advised patients to stop smoking cigarettes for several weeks before their operations to lower the risk of complications. But what about weed?

  • What Is a Torn Shoulder Labrum?

    To compensate for the shallow shoulder socket, the joint has a cuff of cartilage called a labrum that forms a cup for the end of the arm bone. When a patient sustains a shoulder injury, it is possible that the patient has a labral tear. The labrum also becomes more brittle with age and can fray and tear as part of the aging process.
