Superior shoulder suspensory complex (SSSC) plays a key role in maintaining stable upper extremity- axial skeleton connection. Injury to one component is a common occurrence while double disruption leading to floating shoulder is a rare occurrence. Disruption of more than one component of this complex leads to significant morbidity and interferes with adequate shoulder function and requires surgical intervention.
