    CASE REPORT

Bilateral posterior fracture-dislocation of the shoulder. A case report

Coppari E., Giordani F.

Posterior fracture-dislocation of the shoulder is rare; it becomes exceptional when bilateral. A case of a patient who sustained bilateral fracture-dislocation of the shoulder following an epileptic seizure is presented. On the left shoulder a closed reduction was accomplished under general anesthesia and with muscle relaxation. On the right side closed reduction was unsuccessful since the shoulder was locked, so an open treatment was performed. Due to a significant articular humeral head defect, involving more than 50% of the articular surface, a hemiarthroplasty was performed. At one year follow-up both outcomes were excellent and the patient has returned to his original occupation.
