Early mobilisation versus sling immobilisation following Arthroscopic shoulder stabilisation: A prospective randomised controlled trial
Author(s): Dr. Alizayagam N Hasan and Dr. Parth A Trivedi
This Study compared the clinical outcomes following Arthroscopic shoulder stabilization between Early mobilization versus Sling Immobilisation. At the time of this analysis, 28 patients had been recruited into study. 6 patients were lost to follow up. Basic demographics of both were similar. 9 patients had reached their final 2 year follow up. The average follow up for the remaining 13 patients was 8.4 months at the time of this presentation. There was a statistically significant improvement in OSIS from pre-op to the point of most recent follow up in both SI (p=0.0004) and EM (p=0.0001) groups.
Average OSIS scores were marginally better in the EM group than SI group. However, there was no significant difference in scores. They improved in both groups with time. Similar trends were observed in WDS scores.
No episodes of recurrence were noted in the EM group. In the SI group, one patient had a further dislocation at one year. Another patient in the SI group required an arthroscopic capsular release for severe post-operative capsulitis. No patients in the EM group had stiffness.
