A Case Series using FARES Method in Reducing Acute Anterior Shoulder Dislocations in DLSUMC

See More

Anterior dislocations of the glenohumeral joint are very common1. There are several methods of reduction of the anterior dislocation of the shoulder, including those introduced by Hippocrates, Kocher, Milch, and Stimpson. The rates of success and complications following reduction vary according to the method used.1,2 Although most anterior shoulder dislocations can be easily reduced in the emergency department of most hospitals, some dislocations still require the implementation of more than one method, and in 5% to 10% of cases, reduction can only be achieved in an operating room with the patient under anesthesia.2,3. The optimum method of reduction should require minimum assistance for the physician performing it, and it should be highly effective, quick, safe, and relatively painless.2 Because there have been few studies in the literature that have compare the efficacy, safety, and reliability of different reduction techniques, choosing which method to use is difficult if objective criteria are to be considered.2


The aim of this study is to determine if FARES method is effective, fast, and les painful in reducing Anterior Glenohumeral Dislocation in patients 18-65 years old admitted in De La Salle University Medical Center Emergency Department. To provide a scale in terms of efficacy, safety, and intensity of pain felt by the patient during reduction.
