Differences between Coracoclavicular, Acromioclavicular, or Combined Reconstruction Techniques on the Kinematics of the Shoulder Girdle.

Am J Sports Med 2022 Jun 9;50(7):1971-1982. Epub 2022 May 9.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology, Ghent University Hospital, Ghent, Belgium.

Background: Although the coracoclavicular (CC) ligaments are classically reconstructed after acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries, biomechanical studies over the past decade have indicated the importance of an additional reconstruction of the AC ligaments. To date, no kinematic study has investigated the kinematic differences between these reconstruction strategies.

Purpose: To evaluate the restoration of shoulder motion after an AC injury using a CC ligament, an AC ligament, or a combined reconstruction technique. Read More

Sternoclavicular Joint Instability and Reconstruction.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2022 May 2. Epub 2022 May 2.

From the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, CO (Provencher, Bernholt, Peebles, and Millett), and The Steadman Clinic, Vail, CO (Provencher and Millett).

Chronic instability or degenerative arthritis of the sternoclavicular (SC) joint may occur after traumatic or spontaneous dislocation of the SC joint. Most commonly, chronic instability of the SC joint occurs anteriorly; however, posterior instability has an increased risk of serious complications because of proximity to mediastinal structures. Although chronic anterior instability of the SC joint does not resolve with nonsurgical treatment, patients often have mild symptoms that do not impair activities of daily living; however, chronic anterior SC joint instability may be functionally limiting in more active individuals.

Impact of fatigue at the shoulder on the contralateral upper limb kinematics and performance.

PLoS One 2022 1;17(4):e0266370. Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Faculty of Medicine, Université Laval, Quebec City, Canada.

Background: Altered movement patterns have been proposed as an etiological factor for the development of musculoskeletal pain. Fatigue influences upper limb kinematics and movement performance which could extend to the contralateral limb and potentially increasing risk of injury. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of fatigue at the dominant arm on the contralateral upper limb movement. Read More

Anterior Dislocation of the Sternoclavicular Joint - A Case Report.

Cureus 2022 Jan 5;14(1):e20974. Epub 2022 Jan 5.

Diagnostic Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, USA.

Dislocation of joints in the human body is a common occurrence, with the upper limb being commonly involved in most dislocations. Despite the common occurrence of upper limb dislocations, sternoclavicular dislocation is rare, comprising just 1% of all dislocations seen. This is attributed to a combination of restricted range of movements and strong ligaments around it. Read More

Reconstruction of the Sternoclavicular Joint After Excessive Medial Clavicle Resection.

Arthrosc Tech 2021 Dec 18;10(12):e2733-e2739. Epub 2021 Nov 18.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore.

Medial clavicle excision is a rarely indicated procedure and may be performed in different pathologies affecting the medial clavicle. Excessive medial clavicle resection with an injury to the costoclavicular ligament often leads to poor postoperative results. The exact surgical treatment used in this kind of pathology when conservative treatment is unsuccessful remains unclear. Read More

Department of Trauma Surgery and Orthopedics, BG Hospital Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin gGmbH, Warener Straße 7, 12683 Berlin, Germany.

Clavicle injuries are common, but only few case reports describe combined clavicular injuries (CCI). CCI include combinations between clavicular fractures and acromioclavicular/sternoclavicular joint dislocations (SCJD). We present the first general therapeutic recommendations for CCI based on a new classification and their distribution. Read More

Acute Dislocations of the Sternoclavicular Joint: A Review Article.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2022 Feb;30(4):148-154

From the Division of Orthopaedic Trauma, Vanderbilt University Medical center (Obremskey and Baron), Division of Orthopaedic Trauma, Fundacion Santa Fe de Bogota University Hospital, Bogotá D.C., Colombia (Pesantez); Division of Orthopaedic Trauma, Washington University, St. Louis, MO (Tatman).

Acute dislocations of the sternoclavicular joint are uncommon injuries, and it is difficult for physicians to develop expertise in treating these injuries because of their infrequent nature. No level I evidence currently exists for these injuries, but several retrospective studies and surgical techniques have been described. For acute injuries, current recommendations include early treatment with closed reduction. Read More

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.

Kinematic Alterations in the Shoulder Complex in Rockwood V Acromioclavicular Injuries During Humerothoracic and Scapulothoracic Movements: A Whole-Cadaver Study.

Am J Sports Med 2021 12 29;49(14):3988-4000. Epub 2021 Oct 29.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology, Ghent University Hospital, Ghent, Belgium.

Background: Previous cadaveric kinematic studies on acromioclavicular injuries described mainly rotational differences during humerothoracic movements. Although isolated scapulothoracic movements are also often performed during activities of daily life and can be painful after acromioclavicular injuries, they have not been extensively studied. Further, the analysis of joint translations in kinematic studies has received little attention compared with biomechanical studies. 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

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.
