84 years old woman, severily handicapped by Parkinson disease and multilacunar infarcts. Not able to walk. She shows claw hands due to neurological disease. 2002 she suffered a 4-part fracture on her right proximal humerus. She had a cemented shoulder replacement in a terrific anteverssion. Since 2003, she had a transient bump on the anterior part of her shoulder. Lately, this bump was tearing the skin, with spontaneous bleeding... WHAT TO DO?
