Arthroscopic reduction and percutaneous external fixation is a well-known technique for treating selected fractures. This is the first report of a method of treating intra-articular glenoid rim fracture using shoulder arthroscopy and percutaneous external fixation. The surgical trauma associated with open operative treatment of these fractures can be minimized using minimally invasive techniques under arthroscopic control. This technique not only allows for anatomic reduction with minimal… CONTINUE READING
