Hills-Sachs lesion — a complication of glenohumeral joint dislocation

By Peter L Kogon


The undiagnosed presence of an occult fracture of the posterolateral portion of the humeral head may contribute to clinically obscure symptomatology following dislocation of a shoulder joint. A discussion relative to the etiology, pathogenesis and statistical incidence of the Hill-Sachs deformity is offered. An emphasis is placed on appropriate imaging and diagnosis. An accompanying radiographic example is provided in order to enhance practitioner appreciation
