Non-union of Scapular Spine Fracture Case-Report: a Cause of Classical Subacromial Impingement Syndrome

Jose Maria Silberberg Muiño, Alessandro Nilo Fulvi, Martin Gimenez

Abstract


Fractures of the scapular spine are relatively uncommon and in most cases healing of the fracture is achieved following conservative treatment.  We report a case of a 36 year old male who developed a painful atrophic non-union scapular spine fracture producing secondarily subacromial impingement symptoms and his sustained recovery 9 years after treatment by open reduction, internal fixation and bone grafting.
