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...

Snapping scapula syndrome represents a rare entity in shoulder surgery. Clinically, it presents as shoulder pain and loud crepitus during shoulder movement. Moreover, glenohumeral bursitis can cause additional pain. Snapping scapula syndrome is caused by an increased angulation of the superomedial part of the scapula combined with bursitis. Other common causes such as subscapular osteochondroma or rib fracture non-unions were excluded. We report a 24-year-old female patient with persisting shoulder pain and disturbing crepitus during movement of the left shoulder...

HYPOTHESIS AND BACKGROUND: Scapular incongruity has been described as a contributing factor to the development of snapping scapula syndrome (SSS). The purpose of this retrospective case-control study was to determine the association between scapula bony morphology on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the diagnosis of SSS. METHODS: Bony morphologies of the scapula were evaluated on MRI scans of 26 patients with SSS and 19 patients with non-SSS pathologies. The medial scapula corpus angle (MSCA) was measured on axial MRI sequences...

HYPOTHESIS: Because a 4-dimensional CT scan (4D CT) is able to provide a moving 3-dimensional (3D) image in real time in patients with snapping scapula syndrome, a 4D CT scan should be able to demonstrate bony impingement of the scapula on the posterior thorax. This study was performed to determine if 4D CT scans aid the clinician in defining the size and location of the scapular bone causing impingement in patients with snapping scapula syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between October 2009 and August 2013, 12 patients (median age, 26...

Snapping scapula syndrome is a rare condition resulting in painful crepitus of the scapulothoracic articulation that may be more common in a military population because of significant upper extremity load-bearing activities. Conservative management is the first-line therapy and is successful in up to 80% of patients. For those patients who fail conservative management, arthroscopic bursectomy and partial scapulectomy is a reasonable option, but is technically demanding and requires an in-depth understanding of the complex anatomy of the scapulothoracic region...

The scapulothoracic articulation is a sliding junction between the deep aspect of the scapula and thoracic rib cage at the levels of ribs 2 through 7. Motion at this articulation is dynamically stabilized by a variety of muscular attachments, allowing for controlled positioning of the glenoid to assist in glenohumeral joint function. A thorough understanding of the complex anatomic relationships, including the various muscles, and bursa, is critical to the evaluation of patients presenting with scapulothoracic disorders...
