The incidence of hip dislocation can vary based on factors including age and patient co-morbidities. Prosthetic hip dislocations present a particularly difficult challenge. Although many cases are treated in the emergency setting using procedural sedation for reduction, some may require general anesthesia. We report two cases in which lumbar plexus ...

Dislocations involving the four ulnar carpometacarpal joints are rare. These complex dislocations are considered to be due to the application of a hyperflexion force on the metacarpal heads.
