Old non-united left humeral head and neck fracture. There is also an old non-united fracture of the lateral right clavicle.
The patient reported a history of a left proximal humerus fracture 9 years ago, with failed open reduction and internal fixation. This resulted in chronic pain and disability with very little function or range of movement in her left shoulder.
