The mechanism of injury may involve either a direct injury over acromion, superior dislocation of humeral head (6) or inferior dislocation with luxatio erecta
Inferior shoulder dislocation or luxatio erecta is the least common type of glenohumeral dislocation, comprising only about 0.5% of all shoulder dislocations.
There are a number of complications associated with luxatio erecta. Eighty percent of patients with this injury have either an associated rotator cuff tear or a fracture of the greater tuberosity (which we'll get to in a bit).
Luxatio erecta is normally treated by closed reduction using the traction-counter-traction technique.

The aim of this article was to give an opinion regarding the conservative treatment of luxatio erecta humeri.
After his X-ray and computed tomography imaging, the diagnosis of luxatio erecta humeri (Figure 2) and complex posterior hip dislocation (Figure 3) was established.
Inferior shoulder dislocation, known as luxatio erecta humeri, was first defined by Middeldorph and Scharm in 1859 .
reviewed 57 articles associated with the injury mechanism of all cases of luxatio erecta humeri, based on PubMed database.
Nevertheless, we encountered no cases of luxatio erecta humeri and concurrent hip dislocation.
