Abstract

Luxatio erecta humeri is a rare clinical entity, comprising 0.5% of all glenohumeral dislocations. Even more uncommon, open luxatio erecta has only been described three times dating back to the 1800s. These cases report poor results including death from sepsis, avascular necrosis, and severely limited motion. We now report a fourth case of open luxatio erecta secondary to a work-related injury.
