FRACTURE OF THE SCAPULA REQUIRING OPEN REDUCTION: Report of a Case.

FISCHER, WALTER R.
The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery: April 1939
Case Report

From the information in the literature concerning the treatment of fractures of the scapula, those which require open reduction are: (1) fractures involving the glenoid in which free motion of the shoulder is seriously threatened and which cannot be reduced sufficiently by traction or manipulative means; and (2) fractures of the body of the scapula which interfere with the unity of the scapula in performing its function as an adjunct to the elevation of the arm.
