Abstract

BACKGROUND: Displaced glenoid neck fractures and glenoid neck fractures associated with clavicle fracture (floating shoulder), acromio-clavicular joint disruption, coracoids and acromion fractures leads to glenohumeral join instability. This study shows how early surgical intervention of these fractures with open reduction and internal fixation, followed by early mobilisation and rehabilitation improves functional outcome in patients with periglenoid fractures. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To assess the functional outcome after treatment of periglenoid fractures of scapula with open reduction and internal fixation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We prospectively studied 10 patients with periglenoid fractures, among them 8 were male and 2 were female. Functonal outcome following surgical intervention was assessed using the Constant-Murley score. RESULTS: Functional outcome was measured using Constant-Murley score. In our study 3 patients had excellent functional outcome following surgery, 4 patients had good functional outcome, 2 patients had moderate functional outcome and 1 pateint had poor functional outcome. This study shows earlier surgical intervention and early mobilization improves ROM of shoulder joint. CONCLUSION: This study concludes that periglenoid fractures with specific indications when treated with RECON plating, followed by early mobilisation and rehabilitation definetly improves functional outcome of glenohumeral joint.
