Glenoid Fracture Injuries

Glenoid Fracture Injury Lawyers

A glenoid fracture is a type of scapula fracture that involves the cartilage in the shoulder joint. The glenoid is the cavity of the shoulder blade that articulates with the humerus. Glenoid fractures are relatively rare, occurring in less than 1/10th of 1% of all bone fractures. They are, however, very often associated with other injuries, including,clavicle fractures, rib fractures, humerus fractures, brachial plexus injuries, shoulder dislocation, spinal cord injury, and other lung and chest injuries. Of all types of scapula fractures, glenoid fractures have the highest likelihood of causing long-term shoulder pain and decreased range of motion.

Causes of Glenoid Fracture Injuries

It takes a high degree of force to fracture the scapula, which is why scapula fractures are so often associated with other life-threatening injuries. Common causes of glenoid fractures include, car accidents, highway accidents, SUV rollovers, trucking accidents,motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and cycling accidents. Slip and fall accidents and stairway falls caused by falling on an outstretched arm may also result in glenoid fractures and other broken bone injuries. Regardless of the type of accident, if you suffered a broken bone in an accident that was caused by another party’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions, you may be entitled to be compensated for your injuries. Compensation in a personal injury claim can include damages for medical expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

Glenoid Fracture Surgery and Treatment

With glenoid fractures, immobilization alone is usually not sufficient, because fractures in the glenoid usually interfere with normal movement of the shoulder. Complications of glenoid fractures following surgery include heterotopic ossification (extra bone growth in connective tissues), nerve injury, nonunion (bones that do not heal), malunion (abnormal healing or alignment), infection and stiffness. Physical therapy is usually prescribed about a week after surgery, and patients will usually keep the injured arm in a sling for at least 6 weeks. Patients with glenoid fractures have a high risk of developing shoulder arthritis in the glenohumeral joint.
