Bremner LF, Dewing CB, McDonald LS, Provencher MT. Simultaneous bilateral anterior shoulder fracture dislocation following a seizure: a case report. Mil Med. 2013;178(3):e400-3.
Simultaneous, bilateral, anterior dislocations of the glenohumeral joint are rare, most attributable to major trauma. Seizure disorders and electrocution are a common cause of glenohumeral and fracture dislocations although these are most commonly posterior injuries. We present an interesting case report of diagnosis and treatment of an active duty sailor with bilateral anterior shoulder fracture dislocations following a seizure.
