Abstract:

The most common neurological deficit after glenohumeral dislocation is isolated axillary nerve palsy. It is not always easy to guide treatment of nerve complications after shoulder dislocation, especially with regard to timing and surgical option. Recently the number of complex nerve transfer procedures is increasing. We report a case demonstrating the use of the modified Somsak technique, an innovative treatment used in this context, which consists in the medial head of triceps nerve transfer to the anterior axillary nerve. This case report reinforces the idea that the modified Somsak technique is an effective method for reinnervating the deltoid and therefore should be considered in patients with isolated axillary nerve damage following anterior shoulder dislocations.
