Abstract
Traumatic scapulothoracic dissocation is a rare upper extremity injury caused by massive traction or blunt trauma. Most cases are associated with a large spectrum of concomitant injuries, including severe musculoskeletal injuries and neurovascular injuries around the shoulder. But, it occurs without damaging overlying skin as a closed injury rather than an open injury. We present a case of open scapulothoracic dissociation and describe clinical features with literature review.
Key Words: Scapulothoracic Dissociation, Open
