  • 1Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kangdong Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea


An indirect reduction through the bicipital groove and allogenic iliac tricortical bone graft was performed as a treatment for a large Hill– Sachs lesion with a rotator cuff tear in an acute traumatic shoulder joint dislocation in an elderly patient. Six months after surgery, the rotator cuff healing and bone union were confirmed. The patient also showed satisfactory clinical results with 95 points of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) shoulder score and active range of motion with 155° flexion, 120° abduction, and 70° external rotation and 30º internal rotation at 90º abduction. The surgical method can be considered for a large Hill–Sachs lesion with rotator cuff tear in an acute traumatic shoulder joint dislocation in elderly patients.
