Emergent Management of Traumatic Posterior Sternoclavicular Joint Dislocation: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Cureus 2021 Oct 23;13(10):e18996. Epub 2021 Oct 23.

Emergency Medicine, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Colton, USA.

Sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) dislocation is a rare but serious orthopedic injury. Posterior dislocations are more concerning due to the SCJ's proximity to visceral structures such as the trachea, esophagus, subclavian vessels, and brachial plexus. Due to the potential long-term sequelae of missed diagnosis, clinical suspicion should be high when a patient presents with a compression-type injury to the shoulder girdle and pain or deformity to the SCJ.

Hybrid coracoclavicular and acromioclavicular reconstruction in chronic acromioclavicular joint dislocations yields good functional and radiographic results.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2022 Jun 29;30(6):2084-2091. Epub 2021 Nov 29.

Department of Bone and Joint Surgery, Spedali Civili, Brescia, Italy.

Purpose: Optimal treatment of chronic unstable acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocations (stage 3-5 according the Rockwood classification) is still debated. Anatomic coracoclavicular (CC) reconstruction is a reliable option in terms of two-dimensional radiographic reduction, clinical outcomes, and return to sports, but there remain concerns regarding anterior-posterior stability of the AC joint with CC ligament reconstruction alone. The aim of the present study was to describe the mid-term results of a new hybrid technique with CC and AC ligament reconstruction for chronic AC joint dislocations. Read More

Pediatric Posterior Sternoclavicular Dislocation Closed Reduction and Management.

J Orthop Trauma 2021 08;35(Suppl 2):S11-S12

Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, and.

Summary: Posterior sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) dislocations are rare shoulder girdle injuries. Despite the paucity of cases, posterior SCJ dislocations pose an important threat to patient safety because of the proximity of the medial clavicle to the mediastinum, resulting in possible compression and/or injury to these structures. Current guidelines recommend attempting closed reduction in the acute setting followed by open reduction if closed reduction is unsuccessful. Read More

Multidirectional Shoulder Instability With Circumferential Labral Tear and Bony Reverse Hill Sachs: Treatment with 270° Labral Repair and Fresh Talus Osteochondral Allograft to the Humeral Head.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Mar 15;10(3):e781-e787. Epub 2021 Feb 15.

The Steadman Clinic, Vail, Colorado, U.S.A.

Traumatic posterior dislocations of the shoulder can result in bony defects, labral tears, and cartilage injuries of the glenohumeral joint. Although traditional Hill-Sachs lesions from anterior dislocations are more commonly identified, reverse Hill-Sachs lesions caused by posterior dislocation often leads to recurrent engagement of the humeral head with the glenoid and significantly greater damage to the humeral chondral surface. In severe traumatic cases, concomitant damage of the capsulolabral soft tissues, such as circumferential labral lesions, can lead to chronic shoulder instability and residual glenoid bone loss.

Recurrent Instability and Surgery Are Common After Nonoperative Treatment of Posterior Glenohumeral Instability in NCAA Division I FBS Football Players.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 Apr;479(4):694-700

D. J. Tennent, K. L. Cameron, M. A. Posner, J. F. Dickens, John A. Feagin Jr. Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship at West Point, West Point, NY, USA.

Background: In-season return to play after anterior glenohumeral instability is associated with high rates of recurrent instability and the need for surgical stabilization. We are not aware of previous studies that have investigated in-season return to play after posterior glenohumeral instability; furthermore, as posterior shoulder instability in collision athletes occurs frequently, understanding the expected outcome of in-season athletes may improve the ability of physicians to provide athletes with a better understanding of the expected outcome of their injury and their ability to return to sport.

Questions/purposes: (1) What proportion of athletes returned to play during the season after posterior instability in collegiate football players? (2) How much time did athletes lose to injury, what proportion of athletes opted to undergo surgery, and what proportion of athletes experienced recurrent instability after a posterior instability episode during a collegiate football season?

Methods: A multicenter, prospective, observational study of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision athletes was performed at three US Military Service Academies. Read More

Osborne-Cotterill Lesion a Forgotten Injury: Review Article and Case Report.

Clin Shoulder Elb 2020 Mar 21;23(1):27-30. Epub 2020 Feb 21.

Department of Shoulder and Elbow, Fundación Santa Fé de Bogotá, Bogotá, Colombia.

Osborne-Cotterill lesion is an osteochondral fracture located in the posterolateral margin of the humeral capitellum, which may be associated with a defect of the radial head after an elbow dislocation. This lesion causes instability by affecting the lateral ulnar collateral ligament over its capitellar insertion, which is associated with a residual capsular laxity, thereby leading to poor coverage of the radial head, and hence resulting in frequent dislocations. We present a 54-year-old patient, a physician who underwent trauma of the left elbow after falling from a bike and suffered a posterior dislocation fracture of the elbow. Read More
