The snapping scapula is a relatively uncommon phenomenon occuring as a consequence of some anomalous conditioin existing between the thoracic wall and the undersurface of the scapula. It may present in several ways like crepitus, pain during scapular movement and limitation of scapular motion. The causes of snapping scapula are changes in the intervening soft tissues, the muscles, or the bursae between the scapula and the chest wall; and changes in the congruence between the anterior scapular surface and the underlying chest wall. The congenital elbow fusion or humeroradioulnar synostosis is an extremely rare inheritable disorder that previously described just a few reports. Recently we experienced a case of snapping scapular with congenital bilateral elbow fusion treated by arthroscopic scapulothoracic bursectomy and consequent open superomedial scapulectomy. We would describe the clinical feature of a snapping scapula and result of treatment with literature review.
Key Words: Snapping scapula, Congenital bilateral elbow fusion.
