Scapular fractures are rare injuries and usually occur due to high energy trauma. Displaced intra-articular fractures usually require operative treatment and yields better outcomes as compared to conservative management. The study was conducted to assess the functional and radiological outcomes of displaced intra-articular scapular fractures managed with open reduction and internal fixation. 12 patients over a period of 3 years (2012-2014) were included in the study. Post-operative functional outcomes were assessed using mean quick DASH (Disability of arm, hand and shoulder) score while radiological outcomes were analyzed as percentage of implant cut-through, mal-union, non-union or infection. The mean follow up was 14 months. Mean age was 40 years. The mean quick DASH score was 7.19 ± 4.86. All of the patients had successful clinical and radiological healing and painfree movements. Mean pre-operative medial/lateral displacement was 10.36mm while post operatively it was calculated as 0.86 mm. Mean pre-operative and post-operative translations were 16.17mm and 1.35mm respectively. Recommendations have been made that all displaced intra-articular scapular fractures should be fixed as they yield exceptional and promising results with none to minimum disability.
