Scapulothoracic dissociation: a devastating "floating shoulder" injury.

Acta Biomed 2018 Nov 15;90(1-S):150-153. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

U.O. Ortopedia e Traumatologia, Ospedale M. Bufalini, Cesena (FC).

Background and aim of the work The term "floating shoulder" was used in a previous paper to describe lesions of at least two components of the SSSC (superior shoulder suspensory complex), a bony-ligamentous structure of the shoulder girdle. Following this article other types of floating shoulder were described, including scapulothoracic dissociation (STD), a rare lesion with potentially devastating consequences, with detachment of the scapular body from the thoracic wall, with following lateralization of the scapula,  fracture of the clavicle or injury of the adiacent sterno-clavear or acromion-clavicular joints. Prognosis and outcome are also negatively influenced by secondary vascular and neurologic injuries. Read More

Treatment of unstable distal-third clavicule fractures using minimal invasive closed-loop double endobutton technique.

J Orthop Surg Res 2019 Jan 31;14(1):37. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, MacKay Memorial Hospital, No. 92, Sec. 2, Zhongshan N. Rd., Taipei City, 10449, Taiwan.

Background: Clavicle fractures are common clinical problems, accounting for approximately 10% of all fractures. Neer's type II fractures disrupt the integrity of the coracoclavicular ligament and, therefore, are inherently unstable, requiring an extended period time to achieve bone union and being associated with a high rate of non- or malunion. Restoration of the stability of the distal clavicle is an important factor to decrease the rate of non- or malunion. Read More

Dynamic Compression of the Subclavian Artery Secondary to Clavicle Nonunion: A Report of 2 Cases.

JBJS Case Connect 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Case: We describe 2 patients with nonunion of the clavicle and dynamic compression of the subclavian artery. In both patients, no structural abnormality of the subclavian vessels was evident at rest; however, with the arm in hyperabduction, arterial occlusion occurred because of the mobility of the fracture and a prominent callus.

Conclusion: This small case series demonstrates an important and, to our knowledge, unreported clinical complication of clavicle fracture nonunion. Read More

Clinical Utility of Routine Chest X-Rays During the Initial Stabilization of Trauma Patients.

South Med J 2019 Jan;112(1):55-59

From the San Antonio Military Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, the William Beaumont Army Medical Center, Fort Bliss, the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) Center and School, Fort Sam Houston, and the US Army Institute for Surgical Research, San Antonio, Texas.

Objectives: The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course encourages the use of chest x-ray (CXR) to identify injuries that may change clinical management during the initial stage of trauma resuscitations. Several studies have failed to show benefit for the routine use of CXR without a clinical indication, however. We sought to validate these findings by determining the incidence of clinically significant findings discovered on a portable single-view CXR during the initial stabilization of trauma patients at a Level 1 trauma center.

Cost-Effectiveness of Operative Versus Nonoperative Treatment of Displaced Midshaft Clavicle Fractures: A Decision Analysis.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2019 Jan;101(1):35-47

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, Michigan.

Background: While previous studies have shown higher union rates and a quicker return to work with operative treatment of substantially displaced clavicle fractures, there is disagreement whether operative treatment results in improved clinical outcomes. Patients who undergo operative treatment sometimes require additional surgery for implant removal. Nonoperative treatment may fail so that delayed surgical intervention is ultimately required.

Expanding the Indications for Mini Plates in the Orthopedic Trauma Scenario: A Useful Alternative Technique for Maintaining Provisional Reduction and Improving Stability for Complex Periarticular Fracture Fixation of the Upper Limbs.

J Orthop Case Rep 2018 May-Jun;8(3):42-46

Departamento de Radiologia, Universidade Federal do.

Introduction: The use of mini plates as a reduction tool is an elegant technique for temporary stabilization of multifragmentary fractures. For some complex periarticular fractures with severe comminution close to the articular surface, mini plates seem to be a better option than K-wires for provisional as well as definitive fixation, because of the presence of small fragments and proximity to the joint increases the risk of additional fragmentation and articular penetration, respectively.

Case Report: Five cases of complex periarticular fractures of the upper limb are presented. Read More

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Dec 30;9(4):595-597. Epub 2018 Jul 30.

1Department of Surgical Oncology, Max Super-specialty Hospital, Saket, New Delhi, India.

Chemoport is most commonly used venous access devices for instillation of chemotherapeutic drugs in cancer care. Mechanical complications like catheter fracture can lead to serious morbidity, albeit occurring rarely. We present a case of a 35-year-old lady, a case of carcinoma breast, who had spontaneous fracture of chemoport access device in subclavian vein at the level of clavicle after four successful cycles of chemotherapy.

Clavicle duplication following physeal injury.

Surg Radiol Anat 2018 Dec 8. Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Department of Radiology, Uludag University Faculty of Medicine, Bursa, Turkey.

Clavicle duplication is a rare entity with limited number of cases reported. Congenital origin and trauma related mechanisms are the main hypotheses to explain this anatomical variation. In skeletally immature patient, trauma may cause physeal-metaphyseal injury in the distal clavicle rather than acromioclavicular strain. Read More

Fractures in older adults. A view of the future?

Injury 2018 Dec;49(12):2161-2166

University of Edinburgh, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Little France, Edinburgh, EH 16 4SU, United Kingdom.

Introduction: It is accepted that the incidence of fractures in patients aged ≥ 65 years is increasing but little is known about which fractures are becoming more common in this group of patients. Virtually all research has concentrated on the classic fragility fractures of the proximal femur, proximal humerus, pelvis, spine and distal radius but it is likely that other fractures are becoming more common.

Methods: We have examined two prospectively collected databases 10 years apart to see which fractures are becoming more common in ≥ 65 year old patients. Read More

Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) in AO/OTA type B displaced clavicle fractures.

Musculoskelet Surg 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Orthopaedics, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, 576104, India.

Introduction: Open reduction and plate fixation is known to reduce chances of malunion and symptomatic nonunion in displaced middle-third clavicle fractures. However, this treatment modality is also associated with several complications, such as hardware irritation, numbness around the surgical scar, infection, nonunion and implant failure. The minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) technique may reduce these complications. Read More

Treatment of distal clavicle nonunion with and without bone grafting.

Injury 2018 Dec 3;49 Suppl 4:S34-S38. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Orthopedics and Trauma Unit, Emergency Department, Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, Largo R. Benzi 10, 16132, Genoa, Italy.

The management of distal clavicle nonunion represents a challenging task for orthopaedic trauma surgeon. Both the choice of the implant and whether a bone graft is needed are controversial points which must be addressed. Particularly, in the case of a hypertrophic nonunion, grafting may not necessarily be needed, but given a poor underlying biological environment, a bone graft becomes necessary in order to enhance fracture healing.

Postoperative chest radiograph after open reduction internal fixation of clavicle fractures: a necessary practice?

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Orthopaedics, West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV, USA.

Hypothesis/background: Iatrogenic pneumothorax is a rare but serious complication of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of clavicular fractures. Many institutions use postoperative chest radiographs to evaluate for this complication despite a lack of data to support this routine practice. Due to concerns of radiation exposure and health care costs, this practice may not be necessary. Read More

Technique Tip: Platysma-flap Approach to the Clavicle.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2018 Nov 26. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Valais Hospital, Martigny.

The surgical treatment of a displaced fracture of the clavicular shaft generally consists in an open reduction and plate fixation. The most common complications of the classic direct "transplatysma" approach are hardware related. These consist of simple hardware irritations requiring secondary plate removal but also feared wound healing problems ranging from dehiscence to superficial and deep wound infections. Read More

Risk of subsequent fracture after prior fracture among older women.

Osteoporos Int 2019 Jan 19;30(1):79-92. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

University of Alabama at Birmingham, 510 20th Street South, Birmingham, AL, 35294, USA.

Among 377,561 female Medicare beneficiaries who sustained a fracture, 10% had another fracture within 1 year, 18% within 2 years, and 31% within 5 years. Timely management to reduce risk of subsequent fracture is warranted following all nontraumatic fractures, including nonhip nonvertebral fractures, in older women.

Introduction: Prior fracture is a strong predictor of subsequent fracture; however, postfracture treatment rates are low. Read More

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Division of Orthopaedics, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals Trust, Cambridge, UK. Electronic address:

Background: This study assessed whether treating medial end clavicular fractures using an inverted distal clavicle locking plate, twisted through 90° around its axis, would allow for a less invasive surgical approach and improve screw trajectory insertion.

Materials And Methods: We searched the databases of the 2 senior authors for patients who had sustained an acute, displaced fracture of the medial end of the clavicle and had undergone operative fixation using an inverted distal clavicle plate contoured through 90°. Through an inferior incision, a contoured locking plate was positioned on the anterior surface of the medial end of the clavicle. Read More
