  • Defining impairment and treatment of subacute and chronic fractures of the coracoid process. [Journal Article]
    J Trauma 2009; 67(5):1040-5Ogawa K, Ikegami H, … Watanabe A
  • CONCLUSIONS: 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. In the cases of type II fracture, conservative treatment is indicated. When presenting with atypical manifestations of subcoracoid impingement, releasing of the coracoacromial ligament proves effective.
  • Fractures of the coracoid process. [Journal Article]
    J Bone Joint Surg Br 1997; 79(1):17-9Ogawa K, Yoshida A, … Ui M
  • 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. Type-I fractures were associated with a wide variety of…
  • Clavicular fractures and ipsilateral acromioclavicular arthrosis. [Journal Article]
    J Shoulder Elbow Surg 1996 May-Jun; 5(3):181-5Edelson JG
  • Nine healed fractures of the clavicle were detected in an examination of 300 scapuloclavicular bone segments. In no instance did the adjacent acromioclavicular joint display significant arthritic changes. It may be speculated that the clavicular shortening that occurred in all instances provided a "physiological arthroplasty," sparing the adjacent acromioclavicular joint from arthritic change.
  • The prevention and treatment of injuries to the shoulder in swimming. [Review]
    Sports Med 1989; 7(3):182-204Ciullo JV, Stevens GG
  • The biomechanics of swimming cause considerable stress on the shoulder joint which may be accentuated by improper stretching or training techniques. The rotator cuff, and particularly the supraspinatus tendon, is at risk in repetitive overhead stroke activity. Arthritis in the shoulder is primarily centered at the acromioclavicular joint; degeneration may occur as a result of overuse or leverage …
  • Reconstruction for chronic scapuloclavicular instability. [Journal Article]
    Am J Sports Med 1983 Jan-Feb; 11(1):17-25Zaricznyj B
  • Seventeen young patients with chronic scapuloclavicular instability were treated with tendon graft reconstruction. Sixteen patients had sustained a Type III and one sustained a Type II injury according to Allman's classification (Allman, FL: Fractures and ligamentous injuries of the clavicle and its articulation. J Bone Joint Surg 49A: 774-784, 1967). Both the coracoclavicular ligaments and the l…
