Milch versus Stimson technique for nonsedated reduction of anterior shoulder dislocation: a prospective randomized trial and analysis of factors affecting success
Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, 04/23/2012
Amar E et al. – The success rate and time to achieve reduction without sedation were superior for the Milch technique compared with the Stimson technique. Early implementation of reduction measures and low pain levels at presentation favor successful reduction, which—in combination with oral pain medication—constitutes an acceptable and reasonable management alternative to reduction with sedation.
