Deciphering acute shoulder trauma with normal initial X-ray: contributions of ultrasonography and MRI.

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2021 May 22:102965. Epub 2021 May 22.

Service de Chirurgie de l'Arthrose et du Sport, Urgences Traumatiques des Membres. CHU de Grenoble-Alpes, Hôpital Sud, Avenue de Kimberley, BP 338, 38434, Échirolles, Cedex, France.

Introduction: Shoulder trauma with normal radiographs is a frequent emergency presentation. The predominance of pain makes clinical examination unreliable, and complementary imaging is often needed for diagnosis. The aim of the present study was to assess the contribution of ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in deciphering such trauma. Read More

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

[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.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, 2222 Welborn Street, Dallas, TX 75219, USA. Electronic address:

The management of pediatric fractures has evolved over the past several decades, and many injuries that were previously being managed nonoperatively are now being treated surgically. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has developed clinical guidelines to help guide decision making and streamline patient care for certain injuries, but many topics remain controversial. This article analyzes the evidence regarding management of 5 of the most common and controversial injuries in pediatric orthopedics today. Read More

Klinik für Unfall- und Handchirurgie, ViDia Christliche Kliniken Karlsruhe, St. Vincentius-Kliniken, Südendstr. 32, 76135, Karlsruhe, Deutschland.

In recent years, the understanding of shoulder fractures has changed due to the progress of arthroscopy. In addition to the cosmetic result, the access morbidity, particularly the integrity of the subscapularis muscle in glenoid and scapular fractures, must be mentioned as an advantage of a minimally invasive approach. Furthermore, necessary secondary interventions, e. Read More
