Five measurements were obtained on each bird (Fig 2): 1) Width of the cardiac silhouette at its widest point (distance between points 5 and 6), 2) width of the sternum at the same level as the cardiac width (distance between points 3 and 4), 3) width of the thoracic cavity (coelomic cavity) at the same level as the cardiac width (distance between points 1 and 2), 4) width of the coracoid immediately caudal to its articular surface with the humerus (distance between points 7 and 8), and 5) width of the hepatic silhouette at its widest point (distance between points 9 and 10).
Does the presence of glenoid bone loss influence coracoid bone graft osteolysis after the Latarjet procedure?
At 3 months' follow-up, bony union of the left coracoid process was observed and the hook plate was removed.
"SICK scapula", an acronym for the condition Scapular malposition, Inferior medial border prominence, Coracoid pain and malposition, and dysKinesis of scapular movement (18), is a condition that has been reported to have rhomboid related scapular winging which suggests DSN involvement.
In SOV images, the lateral portion of SSB was an irregularly shaped structure; the medial portion of SSB was a saddlebag-shaped entity in close contact with the inferior side of the coracoid process [Figure 1]c; gradually, it presented as a narrow strip between scapula and SSC.
Plain film radiographs revealed a cranial subluxation of the distal clavicle on the neutral view, as well as small bony fragments in the proximity of the coracoid but without an identifiable fracture.
A 6 cm longitudinal incision was made lateral to the coracoid process.
In this study we developed two anatomical landmarks, medial related vertical line, and coracoid related landmarks which are based on intrinsic anatomical relations.
The acronym SICK scapula (scapular malposition, inferior medial border prominence, coracoid pain and malposition and dyskinesis) is used to describe this asymmetry of scapula (17).
