Disorders of the scapula

Show Summary Details

Preview

Sprengel’s deformity causes a high riding, fixed, hypoplastic scapula

Sprengel’s deformity may be associated with Klippel Fiel syndrome

Winging of the scapula can be caused by trapezius palsy or serratus anterior palsy

Trapezius palsy is usually due to damage to the spinal accessory nerve

Serratus palsy is usually caused by damage to the long thoracic nerve

Fascio-scapulo-humeral dystrophy presents with loss of scapula control from the late teens to the late twenties

FSHD is autosomal dominant and linked to alteration of the 4q35 gene.
