ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Fractured Acromion Process (right scapula), Bankart Fracture of Inferior Glenoid Process

History: 51yo African American male was involved in a motor vehicle accident. He presents with right shoulder pain and limited range of motion.

Findings: The frontal view of the shoulder reveals an obliquely-oriented radiolucent defect in the acromion process at its junction with the scapular spine. There is an irregularly-shaped, 4 x 12mm opacity at the inferior aspect of the glenoid process, suggesting a bony fragment. The other bony structures appear grossly intact. The axillary lateral view confirms an oblique fracture through both cortices of the proximal aspect of the acromion process. The fracture appears non-displaced and without angular deformity. Also confirmed is the avulsed fragment of the inferior glenoid process. There is no abnormal separation of the acromioclavicular joint.

No MeSH data available.
