This episode is brought to you by KangaTech & West Coast Health & High Performance (Perth)   Information below on is hyper mobility and key factors that needs to be considered for a surgical decision from Hamish Factors to consider:
  1. Occupation: overhead/manual labour vs sedentary
  2. Sporting demands – collision sports
  3. Co-morbidities/physical inactivity – prolongs recovery
  4. Evidence based surgical indications (reduces the chance of recurrence): Male <25 y/o with traumatic MOI, requires relocation + high functional demands = EBP supports surgical repair. Generally the risk factors from the literature for recurrent instability include: young age (<40 = 13x higher; majority occurring <25), being a male, contact sport. I would also include young females in collision sports in this category. However it is a discussion and as we discussed there is evidence that people in this group can have a positive outcome without surgery.
  5. Hypermobility:
    1. I always question the patient about their episode(s) – patients can use the words dislocation and subluxation synonymously. True dislocation or instability in the absence of dislocation. I always I always question the patient around the MOI and do they have imaging evidence of the dislocation (in ED)/needed someone to relocate the shoulder… If their story is accurate for the MOI then I generally believe them when they say their shoulder dislocated. If they haven’t had true dislocation, rather instability episodes – conservative treatment. Especially if you’re dealing with someone who has more mobility than the average (>4 Beighton’s).
    2. Traditional classification include the TUBS (Traumatic, unilateral, Bankart, Surgery) and AMBRI (Atraumatic, Multidirectional instability, Bilateral, Recurrent, Inferior Capsular Shift), however this 2nd population doesn’t do as well with surgery as was initially intended with this classification, so conservative path is the best here. A further classification system – The Stanmore Classification (diagram below) further stratifies it into 3 groups and the relationship between trauma, structure and muscle patterning – article attached. In short, group I relates to traumatic dislocation and structural failure, group II with structural laxity that can pre-dispose them to instability with or without trauma, group III to muscle patterning issues causing instability/resting subluxation. Surgery is indicated in group I and only considered in group II with structural failure and who have failed a good rehab program.
