Abstract

Luxatio erecta (inferior glenohumeral dislocation) is an uncommon type of shoulder dislocation. Early recognition and reduction is important to prevent neurovascular sequelae. We report two cases of luxatio erecta in order to describe the clinical presentation and reduction technique in the Emergency Department.
