Bottom Line: However uncommon complication can arise causing impingement.However he developed persistent shoulder pain that affected his daily life.Shoulder impingement was diagnosed and arthroscopic subacromioclavicular decompression was done.

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.

F3a: : Arthroscopic view showing the bony spur atsubacromioclavicular space.

Mentions: The diagnosis of subacromioclavicular joint bonyimpingement secondary to fracture bony callus spur wasestablished. He underwent arthroscopic subacromioclaviculardecompression. Intraoperatively we observed that thesupraspinatous was intact. The subacromioclavicularosteophyte was observed (Figure 3a) and resected so that theshoulder was free from impingement in all ranges of motion(Figure 3b).
