Bilateral anterior shoulder dislocation.


We describe a case of simultaneous bilateral anterior shoulder dislocation in a 70-year-old gentleman post-trauma. There was no associated motor, sensory or vascular deficit. Patient underwent closed reduction for both his dislocated shoulder joints under general anaesthesia followed by immobilisation for 4 weeks, and subsequent follow-up showed good functional outcomes.
