Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the results of anatomical frame plate osteosynthesis in patients with Ada and Miller Type 2 or 4 scapula fractures. \r\nMethods: Eleven Ada and Miller Type 2 or 4 scapula fractures in nine patients were treated with anatomical frame plate osteosynthesis. The mean follow-up time was 39.8 (12–77) months. The results were evaluated using the Herscovici score. \r\nResults: No complications, such as neurovascular injury, postoperative hematoma, infection, delayed wound healing, implant failure, delayed union, or nonunion occurred. Based on the Herscovici score, the results were excellent. \r\nConclusion: Osteosynthesis with anatomical frame plates appears to be a safe method that allows early range of motion and that provides excellent results in Ada and Miller Type 2 or 4 scapula fractures.
