Bilateral posterior shoulder dislocation

Discussion:

The posterior dislocation of both shoulders with associated comminuted fractures was not initially noted on the supine trauma film. The patient went on to have dedicated shoulder imaging where the fracture and dislocation was revealed, along with the extent of the injury. It was also later noted on the CT request form that the patient fell with possible seizure activity which provides a potential mechanism of injury for the posterior shoulder dislocations.

The patient underwent bilateral ORIF.
