Solutions for Complex Shoulder Girdle and Rib Injuries
While shoulder girdle soft tissue injuries are relatively common, injuries to the bones that make up the shoulder girdle—such as distal clavicle fractures, midshaft clavicle injuries, medial clavicle injuries, scapula fractures, and proximal humerus fractures—are less frequent. Like injuries of the chest wall and sternum, they are often the result of direct trauma such as a motor vehicle accident.
Acumed has a complete selection of products to treat these fracture types, offering surgeons a range of options for restoring optimal function for their patients. And we’re proud to share evidence, education, and perspectives on treating these injuries from highly skilled orthopaedic surgeons.
