[en] Vascular injuries secondary to isolated shoulder dislocation are rare. Unawareness for closed axillary artery trauma by many physicians treating shoulder dislocations, counts often for missed or delayed diagnosis. The authors describe two cases that presented with an anterior shoulder dislocation, complicated by a disruption of the axillary artery with subsequent thrombosis. The various pathogenic mechanisms are discussed. The pathognomic triad consists of anterior shoulder dislocation, absent or diminished distal pulse and an axillary protruding hematoma. Prompt surgical arterial repair is mandatory.
