Acromion fracture associated with coracoid fracture. A clinical case
Bonaspetti G., De Filippo G., Spaggiari L., Pazzaglia U. E.
The isolated acromial process fractures are about 9% of all scapular fractures.
Association with acromion-clavicular dislocation or coracoid fracture is rare.
These fractures are caused by high-energy injuries with direct trauma on the shoulder.
A case of acromion fracture associated with coracoid fracture is reported.
The lesion was surgically treated with open reduction and Kierschner wires fixation. The surgical treatment is difficult and its indications are discussed.
