Case Reports

Case: An 88-year-old man sustained low-energy, bilateral posterior hip dislocation due to a fall, with subsequent right peroneal nerve palsy. Closed reduction was performed in the emergency room, and the hips were found stable to manipulation under anesthesia.

Conclusion: To our knowledge, low-energy, bilateral posterior hip dislocation previously has not been described in the literature. Prompt reduction is crucial; however, there is still associated morbidity and mortality, especially in an elderly patient.
