We present a case of anterior glenoid rim comminuted fracture that was treated with arthroscopic reduction and an AO headless compression screw (HCS) fixation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 31-year old man complained of left shoulder pain after falling down on stairs. The anterior glenoid comminuted fragments were arthroscopically reduced. Fixation with an AO HCS was done after placement of 1.1 mm Kirschner wire as a guide pin through a standard cannulated anterosuperior portal.
Twelve months after the operation, union of the fracture was achieved and the range of motion was fully recovered. He did not complain of any discomfort during his activities of daily living.
An AO HCS had various screw sizes and this was good for fixation of a small glenoid fracture and a long drill bit and screw driver were useful for fixation of deep seated glenoid fracture. A short guide wire could be replaced by a 1.1 mm K-wire. An AO HCS was useful for fixation of an anterior glenoid rim comminuted fracture.
Key Words: Glenoid rim fracture; Arthroscopic surgery; Headless compression screw
