Fractured Clavicle & Acromioclavicular Joint Separation

A fractured clavicle (Collar Bone) and acromioclavicular separation are common injuries of children and others who fall on the side of their shoulder when playing. Most of these injuries are treated nonsurgically with slings or splints.
Severely displaced fractures or acromioclavicular joint separation may require surgical repair.

Fractured Head of the Humerus or Proximal Humerus Fracture

A fractured head of the humerus (arm bone) is a common result of falls on an outstretched arm, particularly by older people with osteoporosis.

If fragmented or displaced, it may require open surgical repair and possibly replacement with an artificial joint (prosthesis).
