Interesting clinical case of 55-years-old pilot operated previously in other location for a fracture to the left humerus, probably escapes the observation a posterior static dislocation of the head of the humerus.
The patient complains of complete functional limitation and important pain. With instrumental investigations, particularly the CT scan, we verify the posterior dislocation of the humerus head.
The endomedullary nail and the locking screws are removed and an anatomical prosthesis is implanted. The result is excellent: the patient goes back to his job as a pilot and resumes his activities around the fifth month.
