Fracture in the most lateral aspect of the trapezius body with extension to the trapezius-primometacarpal joint with synovitis/reactional joint effusion, with intense bone marrow edema and adjacent myo-adipose planes. There are no significant deviations between the fragments.
Fractures of the trapezius body are less common than those at the apex. Trapezial fractures are often associated with a fracture of the first metacarpal base and/or subluxation or dislocation of the first carpometacarpal joint.
