ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: Clavicle fracture is commonly treated conservatively. However uncommon complication can arise causing impingement. We report a patient who sustained distal clavicle fracture and was treated conservatively. However he developed persistent shoulder pain that affected his daily life. Shoulder impingement was diagnosed and arthroscopic subacromioclavicular decompression was done. Following early physiotherapy the early recovery was good with full range of motion of the shoulder.

Key words: Clavicle fracture, shoulder impingement, arthroscopic subacromioclavicular decompression.

Figure 1: : Radiograph showing bony spur followingdistal claviclefracture.

Mentions: On examination Hawkins test was positive. There was noshoulder deformity or point tenderness noted. Active range ofmotion of the right shoulder was reduced due to pain, withactive flexion limited to 90 degrees and abduction to 70degrees. The passive range of movement was full. The rightshoulder radiograph revealed a beak-shaped osteophyte at thefracture site of an Allman type II united clavicle fracture.(Figure 1)
