[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

Minimum 5-Year Clinical Outcomes, Survivorship, and Return to Sports After Hamstring Tendon Autograft Reconstruction for Sternoclavicular Joint Instability.

Am J Sports Med 2020 03 10;48(4):939-946. Epub 2020 Feb 10.

Center for Outcomes-Based Orthopaedic Research, Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, Colorado, USA.

Background: Instability of the sternoclavicular (SC) joint is a rare but potentially devastating pathologic condition, particularly when it occurs in young or active patients, where it can lead to persistent pain and impairment of shoulder function. SC joint reconstruction using a hamstring tendon autograft is a commonly used treatment option, but midterm results are still lacking.

Purpose/hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical outcomes, survivorship, and return-to-sports rate after SC joint reconstruction using a hamstring tendon autograft in patients suffering from SC joint instability. 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.

Patient Position Is Related to the Risk of Neurovascular Injury in Clavicular Plating: A Cadaveric Study.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2019 Dec;477(12):2761-2768

C. Chuaychoosakoon, P. Suwanno, T. Boonriong, S. Suwannaphisit, P. Klabklay, W. Parinyakhup, K. Maliwankul, B. Tangtrakulwanich, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Physical Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Prince of Songkla University, Songkhla, Thailand Y. Duangnumsawang, Faculty of Veterinary Science, Prince of Songkla University, Songkhla, Thailand.

Background: Fixation of clavicle shaft fractures with a plate and screws can endanger the neurovascular structures if proper care is not taken. Although prior studies have looked at the risk of clavicular plates and screws (for example, length and positions) to vulnerable neurovascular structures (such as the subclavian vein, subclavian artery, and brachial plexus) in the supine position, no studies to our knowledge have compared these distances in the beach chair position.

Questions/purposes: (1) In superior and anteroinferior plating of midclavicle fractures, which screw tips in a typical clavicular plating approach place the neurovascular structures at risk of injury? (2) How does patient positioning (supine or beach chair) affect the distance between the screws and the neurovascular structures?

Methods: The clavicles of 15 fresh-frozen cadavers were dissected. Read More

Use of Vascularized Myo-Osseous Fibula Free Flap to Reconstruct a Hemimandibular Defect With a Concomitant Skull Defect Arising From Stock Condylar Prosthesis Displacement Into the Middle Cranial Fossa.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jun 12;77(6):1316.e1-1316.e12. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Assistant Professor, Louisiana State University, New Orleans; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Louisiana State University School of Dentistry, New Orleans; Director, Head and Neck and Microvascular Reconstruction Fellowship; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, LSUHSC School of Dentistry, New Orleans, LA.

Functional reconstruction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a controversial topic among oral and maxillofacial surgeons; this controversy becomes more complicated when one dives into the dilemma of the ideal reconstructive modality. TMJ defects might result from various etiologies, such as blunt or penetrating traumatic injuries, advanced degenerative joint disease, or various pathologic conditions, including benign and malignant conditions, that might arise from the TMJ or adjacent tissues. Reconstruction of the TMJ is vital because of its essential function in mastication, articulation, speech, and facial esthetics and symmetry. Read More

Temporary Sternoclavicular Stabilization Using an Innovative Blocking Technique with Kirschner Wires for the Treatment of Posterior Sternoclavicular Joint Injury in Adolescent Patients: A Report of Two Cases.

JBJS Case Connect 2018 Jul-Sep;8(3):e76

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Case: A 15-year-old boy with a posterior physeal fracture-dislocation of the medial aspect of the clavicle and a 14-year-old boy with a posterior sternoclavicular joint dislocation were successfully treated with temporary sternoclavicular stabilization using an innovative blocking technique with Kirschner wires.

Conclusion: When treating posterior sternoclavicular joint injuries, posterior instability should be securely stabilized. Temporary blocking stabilization of the sternoclavicular joint using Kirschner wires does not rigidly fix the sternoclavicular joint, but it prevents posterior displacement of the proximal aspect of the clavicle.

Mini-Invasive Intramedullary Fixation of Displaced Midshaft Clavicle Fractures with an Elastic Titanium Nail.

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2018 Jun 23;8(2):e16. Epub 2018 May 23.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Akershus University Hospital, Lørenskog, Akershus, Norway.

Background: The treatment of completely displaced midshaft clavicle fractures is still controversial, but surgical treatment provides a shorter recovery period and higher union rates than nonoperative treatment with a sling. Even though the literature does not clearly support surgery for these fractures, surgery is becoming more frequent. Elastic stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) with a titanium nail is a well-documented mini-invasive procedure with functional outcomes comparable with those of plate fixation after 1 year but a high rate of implant removal of up to 80%.

Rehabilitation Following Sternoclavicular Joint Reconstruction for Persistent Instability.

Int J Sports Phys Ther 2018 Aug;13(4):752-762

Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, CO, USA.

Background: Sternoclavicular (SC) joint instability is a rare injury, but one with profound implications given its proximity to vital structures and function as the only true articulation between the upper extremity and axial skeleton. The majority of SC joint instability can be treated non-operatively; however, there is a role for reconstruction in the presence of instability that results in pain and dysfunction that is refractory to conservative management or deformity resulting in functional impairment. Given the lack of inherent osseous stability at the sternoclavicular joint and the role of ligaments as primary stabilizers, surgical intervention with emphasis on ligament reconstruction may be recommended.

[Development and biomechanical study of anatomical locking plate of sternoclavicular joint].

Zhongguo Xiu Fu Chong Jian Wai Ke Za Zhi 2018 01;32(1):7-13

Southwest Medical University, Luzhou Sichuan, 646000, P.R.China.

Objective: To develop an anatomical locking plate in accordance with the anatomical characteristics of the sternoclavicular joint, which is reliable fixation and easy to operate, so as to provide an ideal internal fixation device for the treatment of sternoclavicular joint dislocation or peripheral fractures.

Methods: Gross measurement and CT measurement were performed on the 8 adult antiseptic and moist cadaver specimens (16 sides) to measure the parameters of surrounding bone structure of the sternoclavicular joint. The parameters included the thickness of presternum, sternal notch width, anteroposterior diameter of proximal 1/3 of clavicle, upper and lower diameters of proximal 1/3 of clavicle, angle between proximal end of clavicle and presternum in coronal plane, and angle of thoracoclavicular joint at anatomic position forward.

[Development and clinical application of a new type of anatomical locking plate for sternoclavicular joint fracture and dislocation].

Zhongguo Xiu Fu Chong Jian Wai Ke Za Zhi 2018 03;32(3):316-321

Department of Bone and Joint Surgery, the Affiliated Hospital of Southwest Medical University, Luzhou Sichuan, 646000, P.R.China.

Objective: To report a new type of anatomical locking plate for sternocalvicular joint, and investigate its effectiveness in treatment of sternoclavicular joint fracture and dislocation.

Methods: A new type of anatomical locking plate for sternoclavicular joint was developed, which accorded with the anatomical features and biomechanical characteristics of Chinese sternoclavicular joint. By adopting the method of clinical randomized controlled study, 32 patients with the sternoclavicular joint fracture and dislocation who met the selection criteria between June 2008 and May 2015 were randomly divided into groups A and B ( =16), and the patients were treated with new anatomic locking plate and distal radial T locking plate internal fixation, respectively.
