  • An inveterate dislocation or chronic shoulder dislocation is one that has not been present for more than 3 weeks, it is a rare disease in the population with a late diagnosis in our population, Likewise, the identification of the disease and its timely treatment has the objective of not only to improve the pain that is the main cause of consultation of these patients, if not also to improve the functional capacity, we intend to characterize and define the outcome of this pathology in patients treated surgically and those who were managed with orthopedic treatment in the population over 18 years of age of the southwestern Bogotá - Colombia network. Method: Descriptive study, case series, included patients evaluated between February 2016 and July 2020, older than 18 years, categorized using the DASH scale (disability of the arm, shoulder and hand), satisfaction and visual analog pain scale. Results: The study had a total of 5 patients with an average age of the patients was 44 years, 80% belonging to the female gender, with an average time of evolution of the lesion of 6.4 months; Using the DASH scale, 4 of the 5 patients with severe and profound disability were identified, in addition to an average on the visual analog pain scale of 6.6 (range between 3 and 10). Conclusion: Inveterate shoulder dislocation is a pathology which can be prevented with timely attention to our patients, further studies are required and with greater epidemiological force to determine and generate guidelines regarding the management of this complication
