Is It A Danger That A Shoulder Blade Fracture Is Not Operated On?
Hello, I had an accident 3 years ago, my os clavicle was broken and has not been treated until now, is it okay to operate on 24 years old? The problem is that my os clavicle is so high, and for an expensive clavicle surgery is it not?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Broken bones that are not or too late to be handled with the right medical procedures risk causing malformation (mal-union) or failure of joint (non-union). This condition is also at risk of causing complications in the tissue around the bones, for example injury to nerve fibers that can trigger pain.
We recommend that you consult directly with an orthopedic specialist. In addition to a systematic history and comprehensive physical examination, the doctor may consider supporting investigations according to the indications found, for example: X-rays. The longer the delay in medical treatment, the risk of complications increases and can make handling difficult in the future. Regarding the costs, you can consult directly with the hospital where you seek treatment because it really depends on the policies of each health care institution.
