[Fracture diagnosis: upper extremities : Shoulder and shoulder girdle].

Radiologe 2020 Jun;60(6):541-548

Unfallchirurgische Klinik, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Hannover, Deutschland.

Background: The shoulder girdle is a chain of bones and joints which connect the upper extremity to the axial skeleton. The shoulder as a biomechanical unit has a remarkable range of motion and is therefore frequently prone to injuries of the three major joints (sternoclavicular joint, acromioclavicular joint, glenohumeral joint) and the bony elements (clavicle, scapula, humerus). Projection radiography is still the first imaging modality for injuries of the shoulder and usually sufficient for initial diagnosis and injury classification. Read More

The management of Salter-Harris type II fracture with associated posterior sternoclavicular joint displacement using a locking compression plate: A 14-year-old adolescent's case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Dec;98(51):e18433

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, San Raffaele Scientific Institute.

Rationale: Posterior sternoclavicular joint dislocations (PSCJDs) are particularly rare injuries, accounting for 3% to 5% of sternoclavicular joint dislocations. With very few cases reported in the literature, these injuries are often misdiagnosed and imaging is not always clear, thus making physicians often unaware of them. The present case report aims to investigate a rare case involving a clavicular Salter-Harris II fracture with associated posterior displacement of the diaphysis, a term coined a "pseudodislocation.

Open Reduction and Tunneled Suspensory Device Fixation of Displaced Lateral-End Clavicular Fractures: Medium-Term Outcomes and Complications After Treatment.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2019 Aug;101(15):1335-1341

The Shoulder Injury Clinic, Edinburgh Orthopaedic Trauma Unit, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

Background: Fractures of the lateral aspect of the clavicle with complete displacement have a high nonunion rate and are associated with poor functional outcomes following nonoperative treatment. Various techniques are available to treat these fractures, but preliminary studies of open reduction and tunneled suspensory device (ORTSD) fixation have shown good early functional outcomes with a low rate of complications; our goal was to assess the functional outcomes and complications in the medium term in a larger series of patients treated using this technique.

Methods: Sixty-seven patients with displaced lateral-end clavicular fractures were treated with ORTSD fixation. Read More

Imaging of Traumatic Shoulder Girdle Injuries.

Radiol Clin North Am 2019 Jul 6;57(4):809-822. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging, McGovern Medical School, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, 6431 Fannin Street, 2.130B, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

Shoulder girdle trauma is one of the most common injuries encountered in emergency centers. These injuries can be easily overlooked due to the complex osteology of the shoulder. Although radiographs are usually sufficient for assessing traumatic shoulder injuries, cross-sectional imaging is sometimes indicated to assess portions of the shoulder not well visualized by radiographs.

Atlantoaxial Rotatory Subluxation: A Review for the Pediatric Emergency Physician.

Pediatr Emerg Care 2016 Oct;32(10):710-716

From the *Department of Neurological Surgery, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein School of Medicine, Bronx, NY; †Division of Neurosurgery, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC; and ‡Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX.

Pediatric emergency physicians must have a high clinical suspicion for atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation (AARS), particularly when a child presents with neck pain and an abnormal head posture without the ability to return to a neutral position. As shown in the neurosurgical literature, timely diagnosis and swift initiation of treatment have a greater chance of treatment success for the patient. However, timely treatment is complicated because torticollis can result from a variety of maladies, including: congenital abnormalities involving the C1-C2 joint or the surrounding supporting muscles and ligaments, central nervous system abnormalities, obstetric palsies from brachial plexus injuries, clavicle fractures, head and neck surgery, and infection.

Acute Shoulder Injuries in Adults.

Am Fam Physician 2016 Jul;94(2):119-27

Rutgers University Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick, NJ, USA.

Acute shoulder injuries in adults are often initially managed by family physicians. Common acute shoulder injuries include acromioclavicular joint injuries, clavicle fractures, glenohumeral dislocations, proximal humerus fractures, and rotator cuff tears. Acromioclavicular joint injuries and clavicle fractures mostly occur in young adults as the result of a sports injury or direct trauma. Read More

Physes around the shoulder girdle: normal development and injury patterns.

Clin Radiol 2016 Jul 23;71(7):702-9. Epub 2016 Apr 23.

Radiology Department, St Mary's Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, Praed Street, London W2 1NY, UK.

Traumatic injuries involving the scapula and clavicle in skeletally immature patients have unique characteristics that distinguish them from similar injuries in the mature skeleton. Fractures involving unossified cartilage and unfused epiphyses are difficult to appreciate on plain radiographs and computed tomography (CT) imaging. Knowledge of the developmental anatomy and normal radiological appearances during different stages of development of these bones is an essential prerequisite for the radiologist tasked with interpreting the imaging of such injuries in order to avoid potential diagnostic pitfalls.

Posterior sternoclavicular Salter-Harris fracture-dislocation in a patient with unossified medial clavicle epiphysis.

Skeletal Radiol 2016 Aug 23;45(8):1123-7. Epub 2016 Apr 23.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Texas Health Science Center, 6400 Fannin Street; Suite 1700, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Sternoclavicular injuries are relatively rare, composing less than 1 % of all musculoskeletal fractures or dislocations. When sternoclavicular injuries do occur, they typically present as an isolated dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint without associated fracture of the clavicle or manubrium. However, in patients with unfused medial clavicle physis, sternoclavicular joint injuries can present as a fracture-dislocation through the unfused physis. Read More

All Things Clavicle: From Acromioclavicular to Sternoclavicular and All Points in Between.

Instr Course Lect 2016 ;65:181-96

Orthopedic Surgeon, Blue Ridge Bone & Joint, Asheville, North Carolina.

The clavicle is the most frequently injured bone in the human body. In most cases, fractures that occur in the midshaft of the clavicle can be managed nonsurgically. An increasing number of studies suggest that displaced midshaft clavicle fractures have improved outcomes after surgical management, and equivalent outcomes can be achieved with both plating and intramedullary techniques.

Bilateral sternoclavicular joint dislocation due to sternal fracture: Is it a dislocation or a separation?

Arch Orthop Trauma Surg 2016 May 5;136(5):605-8. Epub 2016 Mar 5.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Konyang University College of Medicine, 158 Gwanjeodong-ro, Seo-Gu, Daejeon, Republic of Korea.

Traumatic bilateral sternoclavicular joint dislocation is very rare injury. In shoulder girdle injuries, anterior dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint accounts for 3 % and posterior sternoclavicular joint dislocation is lesser. Previous reported cases about bilateral sternoclavicular joint dislocation were result from proximal clavicle fracture with intact connection between sternum and ribs. Read More

A dual injury of the shoulder: acromioclavicular joint dislocation (type IV) coupled with ipsilateral mid-shaft clavicle fracture.

BMJ Case Rep 2015 Nov 23;2015. Epub 2015 Nov 23.

Department of Orthopaedics, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, Karnataka, India.

A direct blow to the shoulder, as may be sustained in a road traffic accident (RTA), can result in various combinations of fracture dislocations in the shoulder joint complex. Among these, a rare variety is an acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) dislocation coupled with ipsilateral mid-shaft clavicle fracture. Diverse treatment options have been described in the literature, ranging from non-operative and operative, to hybrid management. Read More

A Case of Acromioclavicular Joint Dislocation Associated with Coracoid Process Fracture.

Kurume Med J 2015 25;61(3-4):77-9. Epub 2015 Aug 25.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kurume University Medical Center.

Rupture of any two or more parts of the superior shoulder suspensory complex (SSSC) including the distal clavicle, acromion, coracoid process, glenoid cavity of the scapula, acromioclavicular ligament, and coracoclavicular ligament is associated with shoulder girdle instability and is an indication for surgery. Here we report a case of acromioclavicular joint dislocation associated with coracoid process fracture. A 48-year-old man sustained a hard blow to the left shoulder from a fall, and simple radiography detected a coracoid process fracture and acromioclavicular joint dislocation. Read More

[Combined ac joint dislocation and distal clavicle fracture. Closed reduction and arthroscopically assisted coracoclavicular fixation].

Unfallchirurg 2015 May;118(5):427-31

Schulter- und Ellenbogenchirurgie, Klinik für Allgemeine, Unfall-, Hand- und Plastische Chirurgie - Campus Großhadern, Klinikum der Universität München (LMU), München, Deutschland.

Background: A 55-year-old male patient sustained a dislocation of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint in combination with a distal clavicle fracture.

Methods: Following closed reduction of the fractured clavicle, arthroscopically assisted coracoclavicular fixation was performed.

Discussion And Conclusion: A combined injury of a complete ac joint dislocation and a distal clavicle fracture is rare and is not included in currently available classification systems; therefore, in this article a classification and assessment of the stability of this injury as well as appropriate treatment options are discussed.

Surgical treatment of dislocated fracture of the scapula column and glenoid: a 22-year follow-up.

Vojnosanit Pregl 2015 Feb;72(2):181-4

Introduction: Most scapular fractures are caused by high-impact blunt injuries, often as the result of motor vehicle accidents, fall from height, etc. In 80% to 90% of cases, scapula fractures are associated with multiple injuries (clavicle fracture, rib fractures, humeral fracture, pulmonary injury, brachial plexus injury).

Case Report: We presented scapular fracture in a 27-years-old male who had sustained a work-related injury when a ground soil brick machine pressed him. Read More

Functional results following titanium elastic-stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) of mid-shaft clavicle fractures.

Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2014 ;81(2):118-21

Klinik und Poliklinik für Unfallchirurgie, Rechts der Isar, TUM, München, Germany.

INTRODUCTION While plate fixation remains the gold standard for surgical treatment for displaced mid-shaft clavicle fractures (DMCF), intramedullary fixation has emerged as a promising alternative. However, due to its more demanding technique and depending on the fracture's nature, an open reduction can be necessary. Aim of this study was to compare the outcome of open reduction versus closed reduction of DMCF using ESIN. Read More
