Proximal humerus head-splitting fracture associated with single-part anterior dislocation

~~Fractures that split the humeral head are extremely rare, and usually, the split part is posteriorly dislocated. However, in our case, the split part was anteriorly dislocated and trapped between the anterior glenoid and the subscapularis muscle. In this case, the acquisition of preoperative CT results was vital to plan the exposure and reduction strategies. Open anatomic reduction and internal fixation should be considered as the first treatment of choice in young active adults.
