Abstract

Fracture of either clavicle or scapular neck alone are generally stable and have satisfactory results by conservative treatment. However, displaced scapular neck and ipsilateral clavicle fractures are relatively unstable. Those sequelae as drooping shoulder and limited range of motion may develop if treated conservatively. Surgical intervention either fixation of clavicle alone or fixation of clavicle and scapular neck simultaneously can achieve stable reduction of the fractures and prevent those sequelae. We present two cases of floating shoulder treated surgically with excellent results.
