ANDREOLI, Carlos Vicente et al. Arthroscopy of the scapulothoracic joint: case reports. Rev. bras. ortop. [online]. 2009, vol.44, n.4, pp.351-356. ISSN 0102-3616. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-36162009000400012.
Scapulothoracic arthroscopy is a procedure presenting restricted indications, for resecting free bodies, benign tumors, bursitis, and snaping scapula. The authors report four cases of scapulothoracic joint arthroscopy; in the first case, only a benign tumor (osteochondroma) could be visualized; in the second case, arthroscopic resection of an osteochondroma was found; in the third case, arthroscopic bursectomy due to scapulothoracic bursitis, and; in the fourth case, bursectomy and partial superomedial arthroscopic scapulectomy due to snaping scapula.
