Arthroscopy of the scapula


Subscapular pain and problems like exostoses or bony spurs and tumors or an inflammed bursa lead to an arthroscopy of the scapula. Scapula arthroscopy is performed in combination to a conventional shoulder arthroscopy. Sometimes old scapular fractures with bony prominences make an arthroscopy and debridement of these spurs necessary.
Non operative treatment like physiotherapy and injections should have been the first method of choice.
Separate approaches and portals are necessary to view the scapula endoscopically. Inflammed bursas and bony prominences are removed in an arthoscopic way.
Scapula arthroscopy has to be performed carefully because of near structures like the lung or concomitant nerves.
