Glenoid Fractures



In 1995 Ideberg et al. [1] presented a series of 338 scapular fractures with special reference to 100 intra-articular glenoid fractures. Out of this series emerged the Ideberg classification, which involved a five-type classification system. Goss modified type V fractures and added a sixth type [2] (Fig. 5.1).
