I’ve developed a helpful mnemonic to remember the key aspects of the Hill-Sachs lesion: “HILLS”. This mnemonic reminds us that the lesion occurs on the Head of the humerus, is impacted against the glenoid, affects the lateral aspect of the humeral head, is a lesion or defect, and is seen in shoulder dislocations.
By memorizing this simple mnemonic, medical and nursing students, as well as doctors worldwide, can confidently recognize and diagnose the Hill-Sachs lesion in their patients.
So whether you’re a medical student just starting out or an experienced doctor looking to refresh your knowledge, this post is for you. Let’s dive in!
