Shoulder dislocation

Shoulder anatomy and dislocation

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in our body. It consists of a ball known as the humeral head and a socket known as the glenoid. The high mobility of the shoulder requires a very shallow socket (glenoid). Around the socket there is a bumper (cartilage rim) called labrum which, together with a series of ligaments connecting the ball to the socket, prevent the ball slipping out of joint. These are called static stabilisers of the shoulder joint. On top of these structures there are four muscles called the rotator cuff connecting the scapula (shoulder blade) with the humerus (arm bone) and dynamically stabilising the shoulder when they contract. When the shoulder dislocates the traumatic force overcomes the blocking effect of the stabilisers and the labrum and ligaments can tear if the patient is young. Sometimes the rotator cuff muscles can tear if you are over 40 years of age. The shoulder can dislocate anteriorly (more common) or posteriorly. Shoulder dislocation is an emergency and requires urgent relocation under anaesthesia followed by a sling for 2 weeks and physiotherapy. A clinical examination by a specialised shoulder surgeon is recommended for active patients involved in sports activity.

In fact, survival rates are around 90-95% in cases of non-invasive melanomas. However, in their infiltrating forms melanoma has high mortality rates, with survival rates lower than 20% when it has spread to other organs

Oncology. #Precise diagnosis makes personalized medicine a reality


Nowadays, we know more about cancer tan we could have imagined a few years ago.


Traditionally, cancer was classified by its location in the body and treatment was decided based on the affected organ: lung, breast, solon, skin, blood, lymph nodes, etc. However, today it’s known that it is more precise to differentiate each type of cancer by the type of genetic mutation that causes each type.

#Nursing. Key piece in caring for the patient in HC Marbella


The history of humanity owes a lot to these health professionals.


And it is that without people willing to do this work, the great men of society would not have carried out their objectives. What would be the current health without Florence Nightingale, known as the mother of modern nursing, who went down in history for her work during the Crimean War and for her contribution to the reform of sanitary conditions in military hospitals. Or Margaret Sanger, who in 1917 opened the first family planning clinic in the US and, later, founded the American League for Birth Control.
