Shoulder Fracture with Dislocation

This 70 year old lady tripped and fell from a standing height, landing on her right shoulder. She presented to hospital with shoulder pain and deformity.

Immediate plain X-rays demonstrated a complex shoulder fracture with dislocation of the shoulder joint. The CT scan with 3D reconstructions demonstrate a “head split” type fracture where the ball of the humerus (arm bone) has broken into multiple pieces.

She underwent a Reverse Shoulder Replacement to repair the fracture and rotator cuff damage. The Rotator Cuff was repaired at the time of the shoulder replacement.

She underwent JPL rehabilitation for 12 weeks in total and recovered most of her shoulder function and is pain free.
