Traumatic Shoulder Injuries

Fracture de la clavicule

Fractures of the clavicle

Fractures of the clavicle commonly occur after a fall on the shoulder. For a long time, these fractures were simply immobilised, even if the fracture was greatly displaced. In adults, some fractures can heal poorly or result in poor functional outcomes if the clavicle heals in a non-anatomical position. Even if immobilisation alone can be proposed in most cases, surgical treatment with a plate ensures better healing and improves the anatomical, functional and aesthetic outcome.

Luxation acromio-claviculaire

Acromioclavicular Dislocation

After heavy contact or a fall on the shoulder, the ligaments connecting the clavicle to the scapula can be partially or totally ruptured causing acromioclavicular dislocation or separation. In some cases, reduction of the dislocation and stabilisation of the acromioclavicular joint is necessary. This can be achieved with an artificial ligament which stabilises the joint without affecting the cartilage. This technique is proven especially in athletes. It requires postoperative immobilisation for 6 weeks and sport can be resumed 3 to 4 months after the operation.
