INTRODUCTION: Osteochondroma or exostosis is most common benign bone tumors. They are usually seen in the metaphyses of long bones with more than 35% of cases affecting the bone around the knee and are seldom found in flat bones like scapula. When present in scapula, they may cause abnormal scapulothoracic movements leading to pain, snapping, and pseudowinging of scapula. CASE REPORT: We describe a novel case of osteochondroma arising on the ventral aspect of right scapula in a 16-year-old otherwise healthy female patient causing snapping and pseudowinging of scapula and occasional pain in affected area...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to determine the osseous morphology of snapping scapulae on CT images. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospectively, 2D and 3D CT images of the scapulae of 35 patients with snapping scapula were compared with 35 age-matched control group subjects. Two observers analyzed the following parameters: presence of the Luschka tubercle; abnormalities of the bones and periscapular soft tissues; shape, thickness, and length of the superior angle of the scapula; craniocaudal length of the scapula; minimum distance between the scapula and rib cage; depth of the subscapular fossa; and the superomedial angle...

Snapping scapula syndrome has several etiologies, including subscapular osteochondroma. When this tumor needs to be removed, this can be done arthroscopically, a procedure that has restricted indications. The authors present a case of a patient with superomedial subscapular osteochondroma who underwent a scapulothoracic arthroscopy for its removal.

BACKGROUND: Snapping scapula syndrome (SSS) is caused by bony and/or soft tissue impingement in the scapulothoracic articulation. Surgical resection of the superomedial angle (SMA) plus bursectomy can provide relief in most cases; however, the amount needed to achieve adequate scapulothoracic space decompression (SSD) is unknown. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of partial scapulectomy and the influence of bony anatomy on SSD. It was hypothesized that the anterior offset and costomedial angle would correlate with the amount of bony resection needed to achieve adequate SSD...

INTRODUCTION: Osteochondroma or exostosis is most common primary benign bony tumor comprising of more than one third of the total occurrences. Osteochondromas are considered as an aberration in the normal physial growth plate and originate from the metaphysis of long bone with more than third (35-46%) of cases affecting the bone around the knee (lower end femur> upper end tibia), 10% cases involve the small bones of the hand and 5% involve the pelvis and flat bones like scapula (4-6%) are least involved...

OBJECTIVE: Elastofibroma dorsi (ED) is a rare, benign, soft tissue tumor typically located between inferior corner of scapula and posterior chest wall causing mass, scapular snapping, and pain. When classic symptoms and localization are present, it is diagnosed without biopsy and treated with marginal resection. This study retrospectively analyzed patients operated on for ED to evaluate presenting symptoms, tumor size, complications, and clinical results, and to suggest optimal treatments...

Snapping scapula syndrome is a rare condition caused by the disruption of the gliding articulation between the anterior scapula and the posterior chest wall. The etiology of snapping scapula syndrome is multifactorial, and contributing factors include scapular dyskinesis, bursitis from repetitive use or trauma, and periscapular lesions. Although the majority of cases are initially treated with nonoperative modalities, recalcitrant snapping scapula syndrome can warrant surgical management. This report describes a 34-year-old amateur weight lifter with a 1-year history of increasing pain and fullness over his posterior shoulder region...

Chronic painful snapping scapula is characterized by inflammation and scarring of 1 or more bursae in the infraserratus space and is often refractory to conservative treatment. Surgical treatment involves excision of the bursae, as well as partial scapulectomy of the superomedial impinging region; both open and endoscopic approaches have been described with good results. Scapulothoracic endoscopy is technically difficult, and the potential complications can be serious. This report describes an endoscopic approach that can be performed with only 2 medial parascapular portals for visualization and instrumentation...

Snapping scapula syndrome at the superomedial corner of the scapula can lead to significant shoulder dysfunction. Bursectomy with or without partial scapulectomy is currently the most beneficial primary method of treatment in patients in whom nonoperative therapy fails. Arthroscopic access to the scapulothoracic space is simple and reproducible with the technique described in this report. The bursal tissue can be cleared, optimizing visualization of the scapulothoracic space and the anatomic structures. Arthroscopic decompression of the scapulothoracic bursa and resection of the superomedial corner of the scapula are highlighted in a video example...

UNLABELLED: Winging of the scapula due to benign lesion of ventral surface of scapula is one of the rare cause and difficult to diagnose in first place. We present two unusual cases of pseudo winging of scapula due to benign lesions of scapula. First case was of 23 year old male with solitary osteochondroma of ventral surface of scapula. Second was 38 year old female with hemangioma involving subscapular muscles. Both the patients presented to us with dull aching pain over right scapular and shoulder region of 6 months duration with gradually increasing pseudo-winging of scapula...

BACKGROUND: Resection of the medial upper corner of the scapula is one option for treating patients with a painful chronic snapping scapula. However, the degree to which this procedure results in sustained relief of pain during long-term followup, and whether surgical treatment offers any compelling advantages over nonsurgical approaches at long-term followup, are not known. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We asked: (1) At long-term followup after surgical treatment of a painful snapping scapula, did patients' pain decrease? (2) Did scapulocostal crepitation improve? (3) Did patients return to work? METHODS: Between 1971 and 1992, 15 patients underwent surgery by one surgeon for persistent (> 1 year) and severely painful crepitus around the superomedial scapula that did not respond to nonsurgical approaches...

Osteochondroma is a benign bone tumor composed of a bony protrusion with an overlying cartilage cap. Osteochondromas arise in the scapula in 3% to 5% of cases, making them the most common benign bone tumor in this location. Scapular osteochondromas cause various pathologies of the shoulder girdle, including snapping scapula syndrome, chest wall deformity, shoulder impingement, and bursa formation. Bronchogenic cyst is an exceedingly rare finding in the periscapular area. It is a congenital cystic mass lined by tracheobronchial structures and respiratory epithelium...
