Locked dislocation of a total shoulder

A lady in her 50s had a total shoulder for arthritis at another clinic

 Seven years after her surgery she presented to us with a painful stiff shoulder and these x-rays showing a locked posterior dislocation and a loose glenoid component.

We wanted to avoid the risks associated with a reverse total shoulder in this setting.
Instead we converted the shoulder to a hemiarthroplasty, which was surprisingly stable and which will enable us to start immediate rehabilitation.
