This 58 year old man was sent to me for evaluation of the rotator cuff. 7 days earlier he had a shoulder dislocation on a ski resort. X-ray had been performed there and the report said that he had a small avulsion from the anterior glenoid.
His rotator cuff tendons were intact but when examining the subscapularis I noticed that the coracoid process looked irregular, and on a closer look a fracture was seen. He was sent for a CT which confirmed this. After evaluation by our orthopedic surgeons conservative treatment was decided..
