Case report-Vascular injury in association with posteriorly displaced medial clavicle fracture.

Trauma Case Rep 2021 Jun 21;33:100483. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Starship Hospital Orthopaedic Department, 2 Park Road, Grafton, Auckland 1023, New Zealand.

The primary stabiliser of the diarthrodial sterno-clavicular (SC) joint is the costo-clavicular ligament, this holds the clavicle to the first costal cartilage and the end of the first rib. The costo-clavicular and surrounding ligaments help maintain the stability and strength of the SC joint. As a result, SC joint dislocations are far less common than fractures to the clavicle due to the relatively larger forces required to disrupt these ligaments. Read More

Review of Weaver and Dunn on treatment of acromioclavicular injuries, especially complete acromioclavicular separation.

J ISAKOS 2021 03 24;6(2):116-119. Epub 2020 Sep 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology, OLVG, Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, The Netherlands.

This classic discusses the original publication "Treatment of acromioclavicular injuries, especially complete acromioclavicular separation" by Weaver and Dunn, which collaborated to develop a technique for acromioclavicular joint reconstruction in 1972. Their surgical technique described resection of 2 cm of the distal clavicle and transfer of the acromial end of the coracoacromial ligament into the medullary canal of the distal clavicle. (modified) Weaver-Dunn procedures have been regarded as one of the most effective techniques to treat complete acromioclavicular joint dislocation for a long time. Read More

The Cervico-Parasternal Thoracotomy (CPT): A New Surgical Approach for the Resection of Cervicothoracic Neuroblastomas.

Children (Basel) 2021 Mar 17;8(3). Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Dipartimento di Neuroscienze, Riabilitazione, Oftalmologia, Genetica e Scienze Materno-Infantili (DiNOGMI), University of Genoa, 16147 Genoa, Italy.

Cervicothoracic neuroblastomas (NBs) pose unique surgical challenges due to the complexity of the neurovascular structures located in the thoracic inlet. To date, two main techniques have been reported to completely remove these tumours in children: the trans-manubrial and the trap-door approaches. Herein, the authors propose a third new surgical approach that allows a complete exposure of the posterior costovertebral space starting from the retro-clavicular space: Cervico-Parasternal Thoracotomy (CPT).
