  Title Comminuted scapular body fractures: A report of three cases managed conservatively in chiropractic settings [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2013 Jun;57(2):176–184
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Fractures of the scapula are relatively uncommon. Fractures specific to the scapular body comprise 35–65% of these fractures. Currently, 99% of all isolated scapular body fractures are being treated nonoperatively with an immobilizing sling or brace and some form of manual therapy with an 86% success rate. We present the conservative management of three patients with comminuted fractures involving the scapular body that were managed in chiropractic settings. Residual disabilities in these three patients as measured by a standardized outcome tool were 2%, 5% and 23% after 3 years, 2 years, and 6 years respectively.

Les fractures de la scapula sont relativement communes. Les fractures spécifiques au corps de la scapula représentent entre 35 et 65 % de ces fractures. Actuellement, 99 % des fractures isolées du corps de la scapula se traitent sans intervention chirurgicale, simplement en immobilisant la partie concernée avec une écharpe ou un appareil orthopédique et à l’aide de thérapies manuelles, avec un taux de réussite de 86 %. Nous présentons la gestion conservatrice de trois patients touchés avec des fractures comminutives touchant le corps de la scapula, qui sont traités par manipulations chiropratiques. Les incapacités résiduelles de ces trois patients mesurées par un instrument standardisé sont de 2 %, 5 % et 23 % après 3 ans, 2 ans et 6 ans respectivement.
