Floating Shoulder eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic100.htm

Ipsilateral fractures of the clavicle and scapular neck, or floating shoulder injuries, are rare. They result from high-energy trauma and have a high incidence of associated injuries, likely contributing to their underdiagnosis and undertreatment. Understanding the pathologic anatomy and appropriate treatment is important to minimize the sometimes-significant morbidity from this...

Arthroscopic Fixation of a Type II–variant, Unstable Distal Clavicle Fracture

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.asp?rID=32937

Nonunion is a relatively common outcome of nonoperative treatment of unstable distal clavicle fractures. Although not all nonunions are symptomatic, a comparative study showed that patients treated nonoperatively had higher incidences of local complications, residual shoulder dysfunction, and nonunion than those treated by open reduction and internal fixation. Therefore, many...

The hallux sesamoids can be associated with acute or stress fractures. Although much less common than stress fractures, avascular necrosis of the hallux sesamoid bones should be considered in the differential diagnosis of persistent forefoot pain. The tibial sesamoid is more likely to fracture than the fibular sesamoid because of...

Distal humeral plating of an intramedullary nail periprosthetic fracture

Location: http://casesjournal.com/content/2/1/6704

The treatment of distal humeral periprosthetic fractures is not widely described in the literature. We present a difficult clinical scenario of a 72-year-old man who sustained a displaced distal humeral periprosthetic fracture about a Polarus Plus intramedullary nail. In this case, stable fixation was achieved using bicondylar Acumed Mayo congruent...
