Sprengel deformity: Reproducibility of Woodward’s procedure in terms of cosmesis and range of motion

Author(s): Dr. Nikhil Challawar, Dr. Vishwesh D Chudasama and Dr. Shubham S Zade
Abstract: Purpose: Our study aims to to report the functional and cosmetic results of the patients with Sprengel’s shoulder who were operated using the Woodward procedure.
Materials and methods: Five children were operated at a mean age of 6.2 years and the children were reviewed at an average follow up of 24 months. Cosmesis was assessed using Cavendish score pre-operative and post- operatively. Functional outcome was assessed by measuring shoulder range of abduction clinically using goniometer.
Results: The mean pre-operative Cavendish score was 2.6 which reduced to 1.2 at final review. The range of shoulder abduction on the involved side increase from 102.2 degrees to 135 degrees at follow up, thus showing an improvement of 32.8 degrees.
Conclusion: The Woodward’s procedure is a reliable procedure for correcting Sprengel’s deformity and to achieve good cosmesis and functional outcome.
