Why does the anterior side of the shoulder joint capsule tear more commonly than any other side during shoulder dislocations?
Instability forces: Shoulder stability is provided by the surrounding muscles, the glenohumeral ligaments/capsule and the labrum. The shoulder is most unstable during a trauma, when the shoulder is forced anteriorly (to the front) and inferiorly (below the shoulder). This puts significant force on the anterior capsule often resulting in tearing/stretching. An abducted & externally rotated shoulder is most vulnerable ...Read more

Woke up from hysterectomy with excruciating pain in my sacral area. Found out that my s I joint capsule was torn. How could this possibly happen?
Would a fx of the lateral malleolus with partially torn aftl and deltoid ligs and soft tissue injury in joint capsule be described as bimalleor ?
Bimal equival: A single fracture of the lateral malleolus with a displaced, torn deltoid ligament can be described as a bimalleolar equivalent. It's not truly a bimalleolar fracture because there is only one "true" fracture, but because of the deltoid injury/joint displacement, it's treated as a more serious ankle fracture injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

3mm lump on epl tendon snags painfully at pip on slight flexion. Any excision risks? Fluid escape from joint capsule? Cause ganglion? Other risks?
Real cause?: Epl tendon inserts at the base of the middle phalynx so central slip snagging at pip joint is more likely a tear in fibers extending from lateral band to central slip causing abnormal shift of tendons. There is no structure that central slip [epl] would get caught on. Lump is most likely scar. Recommend splinting protocol first before considering any surgery. F/u with hand surgeon. ...Read more
Could i've lasting probs after nondisplaced weber b fx+partially torn aftl+deltoid soft tiss joint capsule 15wks no union symptoms now offered plate+b graft?
Possibly: Your fracture pattern is pretty common for ankle fracture variants. I would not make much of the deltoid and atfl tears as these occur with bad "sprains". The fact that your fracture was nondisplaced made it a stable injury. You are borderline definition of nonunion. May try bone stimulator. Probably just need plate and stable fixation. Doubt you need bone graft. Once fixed should do fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
