So what is the solution to this problem?

This article was revised on November 1, 2010 by students of Cal Poly Pomona. Edits to the introduction, causes, symptoms, and treatment were made. A new section for Epidemiology was created. This article needs critique in how comprehensive the information was and clarity of the information given. Jaimeem (talk) 23:18, 8 November 2010 (UTC)Cal Poly Pomona, Kinesiology students

Under Epidemiology, there is a sentence which reads, "A winged scapula due to serratus anterior palsy is rare." Under Causes, there is a sentence which reads, "The most common cause of scapular winging is serratus anterior paralysis." These sentences appear to contradict each other. I suspect that the sentence under Epidemiology is intended to read, "Although serratus anterior palsy is the most common cause of a winged scapula, serratus anterior palsy itself is rare." However, I think that point is irrelevant to this article since the article itself is about winged scapulas and not serratus anterior palsy. If my assumption about the wording of that sentence is correct, then I think the entire Epidemiology section should be deleted and moved to a new article about serratus anterior palsy. I will let others with more knowledge about this condition consider my points without making any edits myself. A2Z (talk) 01:50, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
