Fractures around the shoulder (clavicle, scapula, proximal humerus) are common and can be challenging to manage. Adding to the complexity of treating these injuries is the fact that they can be managed by Orthopedic surgeons with diverse training and background—general orthopedics, orthopedic traumatology, sports medicine, and shoulder/elbow. This series aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the management of these challenging fractures and provide guidance from experts on both non-surgical and surgical techniques.
The series “Management of Fractures Around the Shoulder” was commissioned by the editorial office, Annals of Joint without any sponsorship or funding. Adam J. Seidl served as the unpaid Guest Editor for the series.
