Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Previously unreported, we note the complication of anterior shoulder subluxation that occurred secondary to patient positioning during chest CT examination. Positioning a patient's arms abducted and externally rotated over the head can precipitate anterior shoulder subluxation in patients with anterior shoulder instability.
