RINCON CARDOZO, Diego Fernando; CAMACHO CASAS, Jairo Antonio; SAUZA, Natalia  and  MANTILLA, Néstor. Complex fracture of scapula treated with reduction and osteosynthesis with calcaneus anatomical locked plate. Medicas UIS [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.3, pp.135-139. ISSN 0121-0319.

In most cases of scapular fractures the mechanism of injury is a high energy trauma, therefore the most affected are young patients, but considering that the scapula is an irregular bone that is covered by several muscular structures which perform an important blood supply, this makes the consolidation process favored. Scapular fractures constitute 1% of all fractures and 5% of fractures of the shoulder girdle, non-operative management has acceptable results, but there are indications to prefer surgery with good results. We present a case with a review of the literature of a patient who was offered surgery with an anatomical locked calcaneus plate, with good results. MÉD.UIS. 2014;27(3): 135-139
