Scapula fractures have traditionally been thought of as rare injuries that for the most part heal fine with benign neglect. Part of the rationale for this approach is that the shoulder has universal motion and can compensate for deformity and loss of glenohumeral motion. Current research has shown that non operatively treated patients with significantly displaced scapula fractures may have reduced strength, motion, and an increased likelihood of malunion. Other studies have shown operative treatment to restore strength and motion post-operatively. These findings have sparked an interest for the operative treatment of scapula fractures and validated the necessity to provide the education that will make treatment of these injuries available to patients. This course will increase width and depth of understanding of Scapula fractures and their treatment, with a purpose to improve the lives of patients who have suffered and are suffering from these injuries.
