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 2018 Dec 12. 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.

Figure-of-8 Reconstruction Technique for Chronic Posterior Sternoclavicular Joint Dislocation.

Arthrosc Tech 2017 Oct 2;6(5):e1749-e1753. Epub 2017 Oct 2.

Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, New York, U.S.A.

Dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint is a rare injury and typically requires high-energy forces applied through the joint. Initial treatment is dependent on the direction of dislocation, with acute reduction indicated for posterior dislocations presenting with signs of tracheal, esophageal, or neurovascular compression. Although most patients do well with conservative treatment after the initial trauma, some can have persistent pain and scapular dyskinesia due to instability or locked dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint.

Arthrosc Tech 2017 Aug 21;6(4):e1355-e1359. Epub 2017 Aug 21.

Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, Colorado, U.S.A.

A dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint is a particularly threatening injury given the close proximity of neighboring vital structures. Moreover, a traumatic injury resulting in a comminuted fracture of the medial clavicle in addition to joint instability results in even greater complexity. In the setting of sternoclavicular joint instability, definitive treatment that will lead to complete resolution of symptoms is necessary. Read More

Point-of-Care Ultrasound Diagnosis of Posterior Sternoclavicular Joint Dislocation.

J Emerg Med 2017 Apr 10;52(4):513-515. Epub 2017 Jan 10.

Department of Family Medicine (Sports Medicine), Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Oregon.

Background: Posterior sternoclavicular dislocations can be challenging diagnostically, as traumatic force often happens to the lateral shoulder rather than directly to the sternoclavicular joint. Shoulder radiographs do not illustrate the sternoclavicular joint well, and can miss the diagnosis. This injury, however, has the potential for life-threatening complications due to proximity of mediastinal structures that might also be injured. Read More

Bipolar Dislocation of the Clavicle: A Report of Two Cases with Different Injury Patterns and a Literature Review.

Case Rep Orthop 2017 28;2017:2935308. Epub 2017 Dec 28.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Showa University School of Medicine, 1-5-8 Hatanodai, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo 142-8666, Japan.

Bipolar dislocation of the clavicle is a rare injury that is defined as a concomitant dislocation of the ipsilateral acromioclavicular joint and sternoclavicular joint. This injury is also described as a floating clavicle. Although this injury has been known for nearly two centuries, knowledge about it is limited and the treatment strategy remains controversial.

Novel technique for harvesting the sternoclavicular graft.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2017 Feb 19;45(2):290-294. Epub 2016 Nov 19.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, MAMC Complex, Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, New Delhi 110002, India.

Purpose: Originally introduced for mandibular reconstruction more than 40 years ago, the sternoclavicular graft (SCG) has gained widespread popularity for the reconstruction of the ramus-condyle unit (RCU) owing to its anatomic and histological likeness to the normal mandibular condyle. Conventional longitudinal osteotomy design for its harvest has been fraught with considerable complications at the donor site including fracture clavicle and major neurovascular injury. In an attempt to alleviate these ill effects, a new technique for procuring the sternoclavicular graft is presented. Read More

[A new type sternoclavicular hook plate for unstable sternoclavicular joint dislocation and fracture].

Zhongguo Gu Shang 2016 Nov;29(11):1040-1044

Department of Traumatic Orthopaedics, Taizhou Hospital of Zhejiang Province, Linhai 317000, Zhejiang, China.

Objective: To evaluate the therapeutic effect of a new type sternoclavicular hook plate fixation in treating unstable sternoclavicular joint dislocation and fracture.

Methods: From June 2011 to December 2013, 32 patients with sternoclavicular joint dislocation and fracture were treated with a new type sternoclavicular hook plate fixation, including 24 males and 8 females with an average age of 42 years ranging from 25 to 76 years;12 patients were anterior dislocation, 5 pations were posterior dislocation, 10 patients were internal extremity of clavicle fracture and 5 patients were sternoclavicular joint dislocation combined with fracture. The anterior fracture dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint adopted standard sternoclavicular joint hook plate, and the posterior dislocation was at the distal end of the hook of the steel plate, that is, the front part of the handle of the breast was added with a nut and a gasket to prevent the re-dislocation after operation.

Sternoclavicular joint dislocation and its management: A review of the literature.

World J Orthop 2016 Apr 18;7(4):244-50. Epub 2016 Apr 18.

Daniel J Morell, David S Thyagarajan, Department of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery, Northern General Hospital, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Sheffield S5 7AU, United Kingdom.

Dislocations of the sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) occur with relative infrequency and can be classified into anterior and posterior dislocation, with the former being more common. The SCJ is inherently unstable due to its lack of articular contact and therefore relies on stability from surrounding ligamentous structures, such as the costoclavicular, interclavicular and capsular ligaments. The posterior capsule has been shown in several studies to be the most important structure in determining stability irrespective of the direction of injury. Read More

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.

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

Effect of sternoclavicular joint mobilization on pain and function in a patient with massive supraspinatus tear.

Physiother Theory Pract 2016 10;32(2):153-8. Epub 2016 Feb 10.

a Department of Physical Therapy, College of Applied Health Sciences , University of Illinois at Chicago , Chicago , IL , USA.

Massive irreparable rotator cuff tears can be difficult to treat conservatively, especially when the patient has multiple comorbidities. Although there is evidence to support interventions aimed at the spine, there is paucity in the literature describing interventions to the sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) in individuals with rotator cuff pathology. A 57-year-old female with multiple comorbidities and a body mass index of 59 was referred to physical therapy with a 4-month history of right shoulder pain, significant functional limitations, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), demonstrating a full-thickness supraspinatus tear.
