Shoulder Dislocation with Head and Shaft Fracture Ipsilateral

Tomás Pérez Cervera, Luis Roca and Miguel Ángel Martín Montalvo

Accompanied shoulder dislocation of the proximal humerus fracture associated with ipsilateral shaft fracture is a rare injury described in literature collection and whose treatment protocol is not clearly established. Here we present the case of 63 years old male who suffered a fall after slipping in a pool and presented a humeral shaft fracture associated with ipsilateral anterior glenohumeral dislocation and fracture of the proximal humerus in three fragments with involvement of the anatomical neck. The patient underwent a closed reduction first attempt with the help of two needle percutaneous. Axillary artery was injured so had to undergo a second time for another intervention in which we made open reduction and osteosynthesis by proximal humerus long plate and hemiarthroplasty.
