Nineteen cases of anterior recurrent dislocation of the shoulder were operated by Bristow McMurray reconstruction procedure from 1967 to 1980 in our clinic.
These cases consisted of one female and eighteen males.
The age of the patients ranged from 16 to 63 and average age was 26 years.
The first dislocation of the shoulder occured traumatically in all cases, but the immobilization after reduction was not carried out except one.
X-ray examination showed the postero-lateral defects of the humeral head in 18 cases when the picture was taken with the arm rotated internally.
After follow up studies with periods ranging from 3 months to 13 years it was not seen any cases of recurrence of the dislocation.
