Abstract
Scapulothoracic dissociation is a rare entity that consists of the disruption of the scapulothoracic articulation. The mechanism of injury is probably traction caused by a blunt force to the shoulder girdle. This lesion is characterized by massive soft-tissue swelling of the shoulder; lateral displacement of the scapula, an injury to bone, and a severe neurovascular injury. An l8-year-old man sustained a scapulothoracic dissociation as a result of severe shoulder girdle trauma. We report the diagnostic method, clinical and surgical management
Key Words: Scapulothoracic dissociation; Shoulder girdle
