Abstract

MOLOTO, MS; MUNGULU, BE  and  GOLELE, SS. Bilateral anterior glenohumeral fracture dislocation. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.3, pp.88-92. ISSN 2309-8309.

Bilateral anterior dislocation of the glenohumeral (shoulder) joint is uncommon. Incidences of bilateral anterior fracture dislocation of the shoulder are relatively rare. About 16 cases are reported in the world literature. We report a case of bilateral anterior dislocation of the shoulder with bilateral avulsion fractures of the greater tuberosities of the humerus following seizure or convulsion due to electric shock.

Keywords : Shoulder dislocation; anterior; bilateral; electrocution.
