Case Study
The article presents the case studies of two women who suffered pain in their right shoulders. The 21-year-old woman suffered an asymptomatic congenital pseudarthorsis of the right ankle and endured a fall that eventually hurt her right shoulder. The 43-year-old woman also experienced a water accident that resulted into a posterior fracture dislocation of the right sternoclavicular joint. Both women got complete scapulothoracic fusion and eventually recovered.
