Isolated Two Non-Displaced Coracoid Fracture Treated with Conservative Means: Report of Two Cases
Abstract: Coracoid fractures are usually seen with other shoulder injuries. Isolated fractures of this prominence are rare conditions. Herein we present two isolated coracoid fractures after a motorcycle accident and a fall onto the shoulder respectively. Conservative treatment with sling and passive-active shoulder exercises is accepted approach in these fractures. We also prefer conservative treatment at our cases and both of them have good results.
