Scapulothoracic dissociation: a devastating "floating shoulder" injury.

Acta Biomed 2018 Nov 15;90(1-S):150-153. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

U.O. Ortopedia e Traumatologia, Ospedale M. Bufalini, Cesena (FC).

Background and aim of the work The term "floating shoulder" was used in a previous paper to describe lesions of at least two components of the SSSC (superior shoulder suspensory complex), a bony-ligamentous structure of the shoulder girdle. Following this article other types of floating shoulder were described, including scapulothoracic dissociation (STD), a rare lesion with potentially devastating consequences, with detachment of the scapular body from the thoracic wall, with following lateralization of the scapula,  fracture of the clavicle or injury of the adiacent sterno-clavear or acromion-clavicular joints. Prognosis and outcome are also negatively influenced by secondary vascular and neurologic injuries. Read More

The role of bone in glenohumeral stability.

EFORT Open Rev 2018 Dec 20;3(12):632-640. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza, Dipartimento di Medicina Sperimentale, Trauma and Orthopaedics, Rome, Italy.

Shoulder stability depends on several factors, either anatomical or functional. Anatomical factors can be further subclassified under soft tissue (shoulder capsule, glenoid rim, glenohumeral ligaments etc) and bony structures (glenoid cavity and humeral head).Normal glenohumeral stability is maintained through factors mostly pertaining to the scapular side: glenoid version, depth and inclination, along with scapular dynamic positioning, can potentially cause decreased stability depending on the direction of said variables in the different planes.

Reverse shoulder arthroplasty vs BIO-RSA: clinical and radiographic outcomes at short term follow-up.

J Orthop Surg Res 2018 Oct 16;13(1):256. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Orthopaedic Consultant, Alfred Hospital, 55 Commercial Rd, Prahran, Melbourne, Victoria, 3004, Australia.

Background: Bony increased-offset reverse shoulder arthroplasty (BIO-RSA) may address issues such as inferior scapular notching, prosthetic instability and limited postoperative shoulder rotation; all of which have been reported with the standard RSA and attributed to the medialized design. We hypothesised that this lateralization may increase the rate of scapular stress fractures.

Methods: A retrospective review of prospectively collected data was performed on patients who had undergone a RSA between January 2013 and October 2016. Read More

No incidence of glenohumeral joint dislocation in a review of 220 paediatric proximal humerus fractures.

J Child Orthop 2018 Oct;12(5):493-496

Division of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery, Case Western Reserve University, Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Purpose: Proximal humerus fractures in adults are approached with a high suspicion for potential associated glenohumeral dislocation. Axillary views of the shoulder can be painful and possibly even lead to dynamic angulation of the proximal humerus fracture. The incidence of associated glenohumeral dislocation in the paediatric population is unclear and it would be useful to determine whether children with proximal humerus fracture require specific axillary view imaging to rule out dislocation.

Reverse shoulder arthroplasty for proximal humerus fractures: Is the glenoid implant problematic?

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2018 Oct 27;104(6):773-777. Epub 2018 Jul 27.

Upper Limb Orthopedic Surgery University, 25000 Besançon, France.

Introduction: Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is a key tool in the orthopedic trauma surgeon's arsenal, especially when faced with a proximal humerus fracture in older patients. However, few studies have focused on the glenoid side of RSA in this indication as the implant is placed in a generally healthy scapula.

Hypothesis: Glenoid implants for RSA after trauma are well positioned and do not often cause complications. Read More

Five-year outcome after conversion of a hemiarthroplasty when used for the treatment of a proximal humeral fracture to a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

Bone Joint J 2018 06;100-B(6):761-766

Orthopedic Practice Clinic (OPPK), Münster, Germany.

Aims: The reasons for failure of a hemirthroplasty (HA) when used to treat a proximal humeral fracture include displaced or necrotic tuberosities, insufficient metaphyseal bone-stock, and rotator cuff tears. Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA) is often the only remaining form of treatment in these patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome after conversions from a failed HA to rTSA. Read More

Blunt traumatic scapular fractures are associated with great vessel injuries in children.

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2018 Nov;85(5):932-935

From the Pediatric Trauma Center, Cohen Children's Medical Center, the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, New Hyde Park, New York (I.A.e., J.M.P., N.G.R.); Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, Manhasset, New York (I.A.e., L.M.R., J.M.P., N.G.R.); Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn New York (I.A.e.); and Oklahoma University Health Science Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (R.W.L.).

Background: Patients with stable blunt great vessel injury (GVI) can have poor outcomes if the injury is not identified early. With current pediatric trauma radiation reduction efforts, these injuries may be missed. As a known association between scapular fracture and GVI exists in adult blunt trauma patients, we examined whether that same association existed in pediatric blunt trauma patients. Read More

Five to Ten-Year Outcomes of Operatively Treated Scapular Fractures.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2018 May;100(10):871-878

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Minnesota, Regions Hospital, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Background: The purpose of this study was to assess the 5 to 10-year clinical and patient-reported functional outcomes after open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of intra-articular and extra-articular scapular fractures.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective review of prospectively collected data on 106 patients who underwent ORIF of a scapular fracture at a single level-I trauma center between January 2005 and December 2010. Eight patients were excluded from the study because they had either severe neurologic injury or an isolated process fracture, and 66 patients (37 with an isolated extra-articular fracture and 29 with an intra-articular fracture) participated in the 5 to 10-year follow-up, yielding a follow-up rate of 67%.

Lower-limb reconstruction with chimeric flaps: The quad flap.

Microsurgery 2019 Feb 7;39(2):182-187. Epub 2018 May 7.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Mayo Clinic Hospital, Phoenix, Arizona.

Early soft-tissue coverage is critical for treating traumatic open lower-extremity wounds. As free-flap reconstruction evolves, injuries once thought to be nonreconstructable are being salvaged. Free-tissue transfer is imperative when there is extensive dead space or exposure of vital structures such as bone, tendon, nerves, or blood vessels. Read More

Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

EFORT Open Rev 2018 Feb 28;3(2):58-69. Epub 2018 Feb 28.

Division of Shoulder Surgery, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Johns Hopkins University, USA.

Since the introduction of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) in 1987 (in Europe) and 2004 (in the United States), the number of RTSAs performed annually has increased.Although the main indication for RTSA has been rotator cuff tears, indications have expanded to include several shoulder conditions, many of which involve dysfunction of the rotator cuff.RTSA complications have been reported to affect 19% to 68% of patients and include acromial fracture, haematoma, infection, instability, mechanical baseplate failure, neurological injury, periprosthetic fracture and scapular notching.

[Anatomy of fractures of the inferior scapular angle].

Rozhl Chir Winter 2018;97(2):77-81

Introduction: The aim of this study is to describe the anatomy of fractures of the inferior angle and the adjacent part of the scapular body, based on 3D CT reconstructions.

Method: In a series of 375 scapular fractures, we identified a total of 20 fractures of the inferior angle of the scapular body (13 men, 7 women), with a mean patient age of 50 years (range 3373). In all fractures, 3D CT reconstructions were obtained, allowing an objective evaluation of the fracture pattern with a focus on the size and shape of the inferior angle fragment, propagation of the fracture line to the lateral and medial borders of the infraspinous part of the scapular body, fragment displacement and any additional fracture of the ipsilateral scapula and the shoulder girdle.

A Reverse Judet approach to the scapula.

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2018 May 9;138(5):669-673. Epub 2018 Feb 9.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, National University of Singapore, National University Health System, NUHS Tower Block, Level 11, 1E Kent Ridge Road, Singapore, 119228, Singapore.

Fractures of the scapular body that extend to involve the neck and glenoid articular surface with a large gap pose a significant problem for surgical exposure. Several surgical approaches for scapula fixation have been described, but all give limited exposure to the entire scapular body, neck and articular surface. Here, we describe our 'Reverse Judet' technique, with cadaveric dissections and discuss a clinical case. Read More

Scapular Fractures in the Pan-scan Era.

Acad Emerg Med 2018 Jul 25;25(7):738-743. Epub 2018 May 25.

Department of Emergency Medicine, The University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA.

Background: Scapular fractures have been traditionally taught to be associated with significant injuries and major morbidity. As we demonstrated with sternal fracture, pulmonary contusion, and rib fracture, increased chest computed tomography (CT) utilization and head-to-pelvis CT (pan-scan) protocols in blunt trauma evaluation, however, may diagnose minor, clinically irrelevant scapular fractures, possibly rendering previous teachings obsolete.

Objectives: The objectives were to determine the 1) percentages of scapular fractures seen on chest CT only (SOCTO) versus seen on both chest x-ray (CXR) and CT and of isolated scapular fracture (scapular fracture without other thoracic injuries); 2) frequencies of associated thoracic injury with scapular fracture; and 3) proportion of patients admitted, mortality, hospital length of stay, and injury severity scores (ISS), comparing four patient groups: scapular fracture, nonscapular fracture, scapular fracture SOCTO, and isolated scapular fracture.
