We reviewed 11 cases of luxatio erecta (inferior shoulder dislocation) managed acutely at our institutions to gain insight into the diagnostic and management principles of this condition. We then compared our findings with those in the current literature. Luxatio erecta requires careful clinical and radiographic evaluation and a high index of suspicion for associated injuries, as they occur frequently and can be significant given their tendency to be associated with higher energy trauma. Our results indicate that the majority of patients return to preinjury level of shoulder function, despite associated injuries. Closed reduction constituted definitive management in 100% of the cases in our series, and there was no recurrent instability at follow-up.
