Abstract provided by Publisher
Posterior shoulder dislocation is an extremely rare injury. A radiograph of the dislocated shoulder is generally accepted as normal owing to several traps. Therefore if the clinician is not suspicious, this injury can easily be overlooked. Most of the cases described in the literature were overlooked dislocations reported as case reports or series. We aimed to present a case of sustained posterior shoulder dislocation. The injury was initially overlooked, the patient was admitted 1 month later and treated by modified McLaughlin procedure.
