Triangle Tilt with Anterior Capsule Release

Postby JenC » Fri Mar 28, 2008 4:24 pm

We just got home from Houston a few days ago. Our son had Mod-Quad Surgery in 2006 and Triangle Tilt in 2007, he is 3 years old. We went for surgery this time thinking he was just having "Anterior Shoulder Repositioning aka Anterior Capsule Release" but when we spoke to Dr. Nath after he reviewed our son's CT Scan he told us that our son needed the Triangle Tilt again with the release of ligaments.

15-20% of children that had the Triangle Tilt are having to have it done again... Dr. Nath says that he just wasn't aggresive enough in surgery at the time of our 1st Triangle Tilt and because the Anterior Capsule Release wasn't being done then our son's arm was pulled back into Internal Rotation causing the bones to grow to an internal postion. So, it wasn't a full Triangle Tilt, but pretty close. Dr. Nath said without a doubt our son's arm would be in the correct position now.

Our son is back in the Saro Brace for 6 weeks 24/7 and a year at night again ~ but this time his arm fits perfectly in the Brace and we couldn't be happier that Dr. Nath was able to correct his arm for us again!

We go back in 3 months for a Forearm surgery ~ coming out of the Saro Brace this time our son will be palm up at rest, the Forearm surgery will correct that.

Dr. Nath is an amazing man and an incredible Dr. He has given our son more opportunities in life and I am forever grateful!
