Shoulder Fractures – Imaging and Management

Accordion Sample Description
Glenoid fractures are commonly associated with glenohumeral dislocations. These may appear subtle on x-rays and may need further imaging such as CT scan to quantify. These images show a fracture to the inferior glenoid sustained after a shoulder dislocation, termed a "Bankart" fracture. Depending on the displacement of the fracture, management might range from a period of immobilisation to surgery. Orthopaedic opinion is usually warranted.
