The floating shoulder

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/74-B/3/362

In ipsilateral mid-clavicular and scapular-neck fractures, the mechanical stability of the suspensory structures is disrupted and muscle forces and the weight of the arm pull the glenoid fragment distally and anteromedially. To prevent late deformity we recommend internal fixation of the fractured clavicle by a plate and screws. We treated...
