Abstract
Arthroscopy is recognized as an important adjunct in treatment of intra-articular fractures. The author reports on successful treatment of a displaced transverse glenoid cavity fracture, reduced and fixed with arthroscopic assist, using two cannulated screws perpendicular to the fracture surface, in a patient with frail chest. One screw passed through the Neviaser portal, and the other screw passed through the base of the coracoid process. Arthroscopy assisted reduction and 2 cannulated screw fixation through the Neviaser portal and coracoid base appears to be a good method for treatment of transverse glenoid fractures.
Key Words: Glenoid cavity; Transverse fracture; Arthroscopy; Cannulated screw; Perpendicular fixation
