Broken Clavicula

28 06 2007

In May 6,2007 I got accident and then my right collar bone was broken.

Diagnosis: FRACTURE OF THE COLLAR BONE

(FRACTURA CLAVICULA)

Anatomy: The collar bone (clavicula) forms a joint with the breastbone and the shoulder blade’s upper bone projection (acromion). Amongst other functions the collar bone acts as the anchor for many shoulder and chest muscles.

Cause: A fracture of the collar bone can occur in cases of a direct fall on the shoulder, or fall upon an outstretched arm; this is one of the most common fractures (5-10% of all fractures). The ligaments holding the collar bone in place may also rupture.

Symptoms: Pain in the collar bone and upon movement of the shoulder joint. In cases of a fracture with displacement of the bone, a bump is often visible on the collar bone.
