Painful and disabling snapping scapula is an unusual condition and there have been several reports that have revealed good results after surgical treatment for unilateral snapping scapula. We experienced a case of bilateral painful snapping scapula in a young man, but with successful treatment by partial resection of the superomedial angle of both scapula. Preoperative 3-dimensional CT revealed bony prominence of the superomedial angle of both scapula and narrowing between superior scapular angle and chest wall.
Key Words: Shoulder, Snapping scapula, Partial resection
