Cift H, Soylemez S, Demiroglu M, Ozkan K, Ozden VE, Ozkut AT - Case Rep Orthop (2015)

Bottom Line: Patients' ages were 78, 62, 65, and 76.All patients' reduction was done by traction-abduction and contour traction maneuver in the operating room.These patients should be carefully examined and treated by the orthopaedic and traumatology surgeons.

ABSTRACT
Although shoulder dislocations have been seen very frequently, inferior dislocation of shoulder constitutes only 0.5% of all shoulder dislocations. We share our 4 patients with luxatio erecta and present their last clinical control. 2 male and 2 female Caucasian patients were diagnosed as luxatio erecta. Patients' ages were 78, 62, 65, and 76. All patients' reduction was done by traction-abduction and contour traction maneuver in the operating room. The patients had no symptoms and no limitation of range of motion of their shoulder at their last control. Luxatio erecta is seen rarely, and these patients may have neurovascular injury. These patients should be carefully examined and treated by the orthopaedic and traumatology surgeons.

fig1: Two consecutive patients, reduction of the previous and next X-rays.

Mentions: 62-year-old female Caucasian patient presented to the Emergency Department with pain and inability to move right shoulder. She was hanged with outstretched hand while she was falling from the wall. She also had Parkinson's disease. She could not move her arm which was elevated and abducted from horizontal plane; prominence of acromion and humeral head was palpable in the axilla. X-ray showed humeral head under glenoid (Figure 1). There were no neurovascular deficits. Under sedation, immediately reduction was done by traction-abduction and contour traction maneuver (Figure 2). Velpeau bandage was applied with 3 weeks of immobilization. The patient had no symptoms and no limitation of range of motion of her shoulder at her last control 8 months after reduction.
