Patient Data

Age: 40 years
Gender: Male

MRI right shoulder

Irregular antero-inferior labrum with fracture of the corresponding bony glenoid. A bony defect is noted at the postero-superior aspect of the humeral head. This is associated with moderate joint effusion.

Case Discussion

Hill-Sachs deformity is a posterolateral humeral head impaction fracture due to impaction against the antero-inferior labrum in the setting of antero-inferior dislocation, which is the commonest type of shoulder dislocation. This is associated with a Bankart lesion, which is a catilagenous and/or bony defect of the antero-inferior labrum.
