Seven cases of flail shoulders resulting from either poliomyelitis (4) or brachial plexus injury (3) and one case of painful shoulder resulting from pyogenic arthritis were subjected to arthrodesis of the glenohumeral joint by modified Adam’s technique (Adams 1976). In all the patients except one osseous arthrodesis was achieved on an average in 13 weeks. All the 7 patients had good to fair scapulothoracic motion at the shoulder and were able to perform activities of daily living satisfactorily.
