We describe a case report of an axillary artery injury after recurrent anterior dislocation of the shoulder. Review of 22 reported cases reveals that 27% are recurrent dislocations, 86% occurred in patients older than 50, 86% of the injuries are in the third part of the axillary artery, and 68% presented with an axillary mass.
