Management of Complex and Revision Anterior Shoulder Instability.

Arthroscopy 2022 05;38(5):1396-1397

The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, Colorado.

Treatment of recurrent anterior shoulder instability has gained significant interest in recent years and involves evaluation of both glenoid and humeral sided bone loss. Decision making is more complex in patients with significant humeral or glenoid bone defects or in those who underwent previous instability surgery. Appropriate assessment of the glenoid track is necessary as "off track" lesions typically require treatments beyond arthroscopic labral repair alone. 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

Successful Nonsurgical Management of a Posteriorly Displaced Medial Clavicular Physeal Fracture in an Adolescent Athlete: A Case Report.

Clin J Sport Med 2022 05 22;32(3):e319-e321. Epub 2020 Sep 22.

Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery.

Abstract: Traumatic and sport-related sternoclavicular (SCJ) injuries in adolescent athletes are more commonly physeal fractures rather than true SCJ dislocations. Although rare, posterior displacement of the medial clavicular metaphysis after a physeal fracture necessitates prompt evaluation and treatment. Despite the inherent healing ability of physeal separations, delayed or failed diagnosis has the capacity to cause serious complications or fatality secondary to injury of retrosternal structures.

[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

Treatment of diaphyseal clavicular nonunion with special emphasis on microsurgery.

Injury 2020 Dec 9;51 Suppl 4:S54-S58. Epub 2020 Mar 9.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Cliniques Universitaires de Bruxelles, Hôpital Erasme, Université libre de Bruxelles, Route de Lennik 808, 1070 Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium.

Diaphyseal fractures of the clavicle had until recently the reputation to always heal with abundant callus formation, except if operated, due to a reported high rate of nonunion after plate fixation by older series. The reason would be that the bone has only periosteal vascularization, easily destroyed by periosteal stripping for implant apposition. Bone autograft and external fixation has been reported as the best technique to heal a nonunited clavicle nonunion. 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.
