Coracoid process fractures are an uncommon type of scapular fracture. They do not often occur in isolation and are often associated with acromial, clavicular, or other scapular fracture, as well as glenohumeral dislocation or acromioclavicular joint injury Coracoid process fractures: anatomy, injury patterns, multimodality imaging, and approach to management The coracoid process of the scapula is in close proximity to major neurovascular structures, including the brachial plexus and the axillary artery and vein Introduction: The coracoid process is a small hook-shaped feature on the scapula and a key structure of the superior shoulder suspensory complex (SSSC). Fractures of the coracoid are rare. Therefore, no consensus exists regarding treatment of coracoid process fractures. Systematically review indications, outcomes and complications of traumatic coracoid process fractures in adults, and to.
Coracoid Fractures Fractures of the coracoid process are uncommon, comprising approximately 13% of all scapular fractures and 5% of all shoulder fractures (19, 20). Coracoid fractures are usually seen with other fractures of the scapula or shoulder region; isolated coracoid fractures are rare (21) Coracoid process fractures are rare and often associated with dislocations of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint. There is little evidence about the treatment of these injuries in adolescents, but the few case reports published recommend surgery. We report a case of a dislocated epiphyseal fracture to A fracture of the coracoid process is a rare injury, accounting for approximately 3-13% of all scapula fractures .Fractures of the coracoid process are typically caused by high-energy traumas and are often seen in combination with other injuries [9,10,11,12,13,14,15].Patients with a coracoid process fracture often present with pain and tenderness in the infraclavicular fossa after a trauma coracoid fractures. acromial fractures. glenoid fractures. scapular neck fractures . look for associated AC joint separation or clavicle fracture. known as floating shoulder scapular body fractures . described based on anatomic location. scapulothoracic dissociation. Coracoid Fracture Classification
Although the coracoid process seems to play an important anatomical role, there are few reports concerning fracture nonunion of the coracoid process (CN) and its disorders. Therefore, there is no widely accepted standard for the treatment of CN Coracoid fractures are typically associated with more complex fractures of the scapula, and/or clavicle, and may also involve the suspensory ligament complex The coracoid process of the scapula is in close proximity to major neurovascular structures, including the brachial plexus and the axillary artery and vein. In addition, it serves as a major site of attachment for multiple tendons and ligaments about the shoulder. Isolated coracoid fractures are rare; however, they can be easily overlooked on routine shoulder radiographs Coracoid Process Fracture in a High School Football Player Edwin E. Ryan, Jenna Doherty, and Lindsey Eberman Abstract : We presented a unique case of a high school athlete who suffered from a coracoid process fracture following a collision with an opposing player. This fracture is commonly misdiagnosed as a clavicular fracture or AC joint sprain The patients were assessed in terms of age, gender, pathoanatomy of the coracoid fracture, fractures of other parts of the scapula, and associated injuries to the shoulder girdle. We identified 24 fractures of the base, one fracture of the beak body, eight fractures of the apex, and six comminuted fractures of the coracoid process
What is coronoid process fracture? The coronoid process is a triangular projection on the anterior surface of the third olecranon bone. It acts as a bony buttress to prevent posterior dislocation; additional stability is provided by its three soft insertions, namely the anterior joint capsule of the elbow, the brachialis muscle and the medial ulnar collateral ligament Fractures of the coracoid process are uncommon. 1 When these fractures do occur, they are most frequently associated with other shoulder injuries including: acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocations, fractures of the scapular spine or acromion, or fractures of the lateral end of the clavicle. 2 Coracoid process fractures are easily missed and the best management plan is currently under debate Coracoid processes (CPs) fracture with acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation are extremely rare. This combined injury has brought many challenges to surgeons, and the mechanism underlying the injury is still not fully understood. There is no clear consensus on its treatment
Fractures of the base of the coracoid process are relatively rare, but an increasing number of studies have reported using screws to fix coracoid process base fractures. This study was performed to simulate the surgical procedure and obtain the ideal diameter, length, insertion point and angle of the screw from a 3-D axial perspective in Chinese patients In the shoulder girdle, coracoid process fractures generally accompany dislocation of the acromioclavicular joint or glenohumeral joint, scapula corpus, clavicula, humerus fracture, or rotator cuff tear. Coracoid fractures can be missed and the treatment for coracoid process fractures is still controversial Conclusion: In the overlooked and untreated type I fracture with persistent pain and functional impairment, reduction and fixation of the coracoid fracture aimed at reconstruction of the firm scapuloclavicular connection and structural restoration of the coracoacromial arch results in gratifying outcomes
Fractures of the coracoid process are nearly always an avulsion fracture. Two muscles that bend the elbow, including the biceps, originate from the coracoid process. If they are contracting to bend the elbow when the load is suddenly increased and the elbow is straightened rapidly, the muscles may pull off their point of attachment Abstract. Three cases demonstrating avulsion of the coracoid process from the scapula associated with acromioclavicular separation are presented. Two patients were adolescents and one a young adult, suggesting that the coracoid base epiphyseal plate in this age group may be weaker than the coracoclavicular ligaments Acromion fracture. The acromion process is the lateral projection of the scapula spine that extends anteriorly. Fractures of the scapula are uncommon injuries and account for ~3% of all shoulder fractures 1,2 while isolated acromion fractures occur rarely and account for only 9% of all scapular fractures 3 A fracture of the coracoid process is a rare injury, with McGinnis and Denton describing the prevalence of coracoid fractures between 3 and 13% of all scapula fractures. Data from two systematic reviews of scapular fractures in 2006 and 2008 reported the prevalence of apophyseal (acromion, coracoid, and scapular spine) fractures to be up to 8.2.
Coracoid process of Scapula fracture is not a common entity. Because of its deep anatomic location, they hardly sustain any direct traumatic force. Most of the time, they get fractured by indirect force by the muscles and ligaments attached to them. They are usually associated with fracture of the acromion process of Scapula, acromio-clavicular dislocation and proximal humerus fracture or. Coracoid fractures are uncommon and comprise 2% to 13% of all scapular injuries. 1, 2 Typically, they occur from high-energy direct trauma such as a motor vehicle collision or fall from a height. 2, 3 Ogawa et al. 4 reviewed 67 patients with fractures of the coracoid process and classified them based on the relation between the fracture site and the coracoclavicular (CC) ligament
In the case of coracoid fractures or acromial fractures and rotator cuff surgery, one attempts to relieve tension by elevation and abduction of the extremity. This can be achieved with the aid of a so-called airplane splint or an abduction cushion as shown in this diagram. 8. Mobilization: 2-3 weeks posttraum 1. Best answers. 0. Oct 31, 2019. #1. My physician is repairing the tip of the Coracoid, he states -. The coracoid fracture tip was repaired back to the coracoid body using three #5 FiberWire sutures placed through bone tunnels in the coracoid base allowing excellent fixation and restoration of the conjoint tendon and an anatomical refix of. Traumatic etiologies include fracture of the humeral head and neck, malunion of previous coracoid or glenoid fracture, and displaced fracture of the scapular neck. 3 The patient should be carefully examined for anterior glenohumeral instability because this clinical entity can cause secondary coracoid impingement, resulting in anterior shoulder.
Coracoid fractures are rare injuries, which may occur in isolation or in association with other shoulder pathology. The mechanism of trauma consists of a strong contraction of the conjoint tendon as a result of direct trauma. The diagnosis is usually difficult and many times overlooked, thereby requiring a high level of suspicion. In many cases, standard trauma series shoulder radiographs are. Approximate Synonyms.

This is associated with mild edema of the adjacent soft tissues. Mild right acromioclavicular osteoarthritis is noted with subchondral marrow edema at the clavicular side of the articulation Coracoid process fractures are rare. They are often overlooked on frontal radiographs of the shoulder because they are frequently nondisplaced and difficult to visualize. The axillary radiograph is best for their detection. These fractures are usually associated with direct trauma and are associated with other fractures in the shoulder
The coracoid process is an anteriorly projecting hook-like process on the superolateral edge of the scapula that projects anterolaterally. Gross anatomy Attachments muscles: coracobrachialis from the medial apex short head of biceps brachii. Coracoid Process. Coracoid process fractures represent 2-13% of scapular fractures [37, 42, 44]. These fractures most often occur at the base with minimal displacement [37, 45, 46]. Several mechanisms account for coracoid process fractures including direct blunt trauma or indirect trauma from a shoulder dislocation [47-49] Regan W, Morrey B.

Linscheid RL, O'Driscoll SW The coracoid process is a curved osseous projection off the anterior neck. The pear-shaped glenoid fossa lies at the lateral angle, its margin covered by a fibrocartilaginous labrum, which is confluent above with the long head of the biceps tendon at the supraglenoid tubercle. This labrum enhances the depth of the glenoid by 50% We reviewed 67 consecutive patients with fractures of the coracoid process, classifying them by the relationship between the fracture site and the coracoclavicular ligament. The 53 type-I fractures were behind the attachment of this ligament, and the 11 type-II fractures were anterior to it. The relationship of three fractures was uncertain
Intraoperatively, coracoid process was found to have a comminuted fracture. The operative plan had to be changed on table as coracoclavicular fixation was not possible. So acromioclavicular joint fixation was done using tension band wiring and the coracoclavicular ligament was repaired using a 2-0 ethibond . In view of significant engaging Hill-Sach's lesion, bony reconstruction of glenoid to increase the articular arc was planned. However in view of the small coracoid fragment occurred due to fracture, Latarjet's procedure could not be planned and iliac.
A lateral axillary view isolates the coracoid process and helps delineate associated shoulder dislocations. Tangential oblique views aid in the evaluation of small or subtle scapular body fractures. A CT scan may be a helpful adjunct in glenoid and coracoid fracture assessment. [1, 9, 10, 2, 3, 4 Avulsion fracture at the site of attachment of the coracoid process of the coracoclavicular ligament (CCL) is extremely rare. We presented three adult cases of this unusual avulsion fracture associated with other injuries.

1. Introduction. Coracoid process fracture is uncommon, with an incidence between 3 and 13% of all scapular fractures; which themselves constitute less than 1% of all fractures. 1 It may present as an isolated avulsion injury or with associated dislocation of acromio-clavicular joint and shoulder joint.2, 3 Isolated coracoid process fractures and non-unions are easily missed as they rarely. Isolated fracture of the coracoid process (CP) is uncommon. Furthermore, CP fracture associated with acromioclavicular (AC) dislocation is even rarer. One case is reported here, and relevant published articles are reviewed. Case report. A 37‐year‐old man fell from a height of 2 m, injuring his right shoulder Introduction.
