Surgical management of posterior shoulder instability in a ten-year-old boy: a case report and literature review.

Abstract

Posterior shoulder instability is an uncommon clinical entity. It is even more rare in the pediatric population. We report the case of a 10-year-old boy who experienced recurrent posttraumatic posterior shoulder instability that eventually required surgical intervention. A review of the literature revealed no previous report of surgical management of nonobstetrical posttraumatic posterior glenohumeral instability in a skeletally immature individual.
