ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the efficacy of a novel sternoclavicular hook-plate for treatment of proximal clavicle fracture with dislocation of sternoclavicular joint.@*METHODS@#Retrospective analysis of 13 cases of proximal clavicle fracture with dislocation of sternoclavicular joint treated with sternoclavicular hook-plate from June 2011 to January 2019 in our department. There were 9 males and 4 females, aged 26 to 78 years old, with an average age of (54.08±13.91) years old. All the patients had closed injuries without damage of blood vessels and nerves. The patient's operation time, intraoperative blood loss, hospital stay time, and postoperative complications were recorded. Fracture healing and reduction were evaluated according to X-ray and CT after operation. Constant-Murley score and Rockwood sternoclavicular joint score were used to evaluate limb function at 12 months after operation.@*RESULTS@#All the patients were treated with sternoclavicular hook-plate. The operation time ranged from 50 to 76 min, with a mean of (54.08±13.91) min. The intraoperative blood loss ranged from 20 to 56 ml, with a mean of (46.08±11.15) ml. The hospital stay time ranged from 6 to 14 d, with a mean of (8.31±2.32) d. X-ray and CT examination on the second day after operation showed that all fractures and dislocations were anatomically reduced, and shoulder joint function exercise was performed early. All patients were followed up, and the duration ranged from 12 to 24 months, with a mean of (16.77±4.63) months. The healing time ranged from 9 to 13 d, with a mean of (11.00±1.75) d;and the bone healing time ranged from 3 to 4 months, with a mean of (3.65±0.46) months. There were no complications such as infection, internal fixation failure and nerve injury. At 12 months follow-up, the constant Murley score ranged from 78 to 100, with a mean of 87.83± 11.26; and Rockwood score ranged from 9 to 15, with a mean of 13.70±1.85. Among them, 11 cases were excellent, 1 case was good, and 1 case was general.@*CONCLUSION@#The use of the novel sternoclavicular hook-plate for treatment of proximal clavicle fracture with dislocation of sternoclavicular joint is an effectively internal fixation with high safety, allowing early functional exercise for patients.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Rat-bite fever is a rarely diagnosed illness caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis . Although this disease is distributed worldwide, there have been few cases reported in Europe. Here, we report a case of vertebral osteomyelitis and sternoclavicular septic arthritis caused by S. moniliformis in a Portuguese patient previously bitten by a rat. Laboratory diagnosis was performed using molecular identification. This is the first case report of rat-bite fever in Portugal. The case described here serves as a reminder for physicians to consider this diagnosis in patients who have developed fever syndromes after being in contact with rodents.

ABSTRACT

Resumen: La epifisiólisis esternoclavicular es una lesión rara, siendo la variante posterior aún menos frecuente. Su presentación clínica puede ser sutil o puede comprometer estructuras mediastinales, ya sea inicialmente o durante la evolución, lo que constituye un cuadro grave y potencialmente fatal. Este reporte de caso documenta una disociación esternoclavicular en un paciente con esqueleto inmaduro, dada por una lesión fisaria tipo Salter y Harris 1, la que se trató quirúrgicamente mediante reducción abierta y fijación interna con lazadas en ocho transóseas con sutura no reabsorbible. Con un seguimiento de 10 meses y resultados excelentes. Esta técnica parece ser una buena opción para el tratamiento de luxación esternoclavicular en el paciente esquemáticamente inmaduro, recuperando la función y evitando complicaciones.


Abstract: Sternoclavicular epiphysiolysis is a rare lesion, the posterior variant being even less common. Its clinical presentation may be subtle, or it may compromise mediastinal structures, either initially or during evolution, which is a serious and potentially fatal picture. This case report documents sternoclavicular dissociation in a patient with an immature skeleton, given by a Salter and Harris 1-type injury, which was surgically treated by open reduction and internal fixation with transosseous configuration with non-reabsorbable suture. With a 10-month follow-up and excellent results. This technique seems to be a good option for the treatment of sternoclavicular dislocation in the schematically immature patient, regaining function and avoiding complications.

ABSTRACT

La luxación de la articulación esternoclavicular (AEC) representa menos del 5% de las luxaciones de la cintura escapular. El tratamiento quirúrgico esta reservado para pacientes con inestabilidad de la articulación EC sintomática y persistente. Se han descrito varias técnicas diferentes para la reconstrucción AEC. El objetivo de nuestro trabajo fue reportar el caso de una paciente con inestabilidad EC anterior recurrente, a la que se le realizó una técnica de reconstrucción en forma de 8, como fue descripto por Spencer y Kuhn,utilizando un aloinjerto de tibial posterior


Sternoclavicular dislocations account for less than 5% of all dislocations of the scapular belt. Chronic instability without response to physical therapy warrants surgical treatment. Several techniques have been described for the reconstruction of the SC joint. The purpose of this work was to report on a case of a patient who developed chronic instability of the SC joint and underwent surgical reconstruction using the "figure of eight" technique as described by Spencer & Kuhn15 using posterior tibial allograft

ABSTRACT

Identification of certain abnormalities of the chest wall can be extremely helpful in correctly diagnosing a number of syndromic conditions and systemic diseases. Additionally, chest wall abnormalities may sometimes constitute diagnoses by themselves. In the present pictorial essay, we review a number of such conditions and provide illustrative cases that were retrospectively identified from our clinical imaging database. These include pentalogy of Cantrell, Klippel-Feil syndrome, cleidocranial dysplasia, Poland syndrome, osteopetrosis, neurofibromatosis type 1, Marfan syndrome, Gardner syndrome, systemic sclerosis, relapsing polychondritis, polymyositis/dermatomyositis, ankylosing spondylitis, hyperparathyroidism, rickets, sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, tuberculosis, septic arthritis of the sternoclavicular joint, elastofibroma dorsi, and sternal dehiscence.

ABSTRACT

Pustulotic arthro-osteitis (PAO) is a rare chronic inflammatory disorder characterized by inflammatory osteitis of the sternoclavicular joint and palmoplantar pustulosis. Here, we report a case of PAO that was successfully treated with a TNF-α inhibitor. A 45-year-old man presented with a 3-month history of pustular eruption on the palms and soles. Physical examination showed multiple erythematous papulopustules on the palms, back, and left shin, accompanied by sternoclavicular joint swelling and tenderness. Skin biopsy showed intraepidermal pustules filled with neutrophils on the palm. Bone scintigraphy revealed increased uptake in the bilateral sternoclavicular and other axial joints. Based on these findings, we made the diagnosis of PAO. Even after 6-month treatment of oral steroids and cyclosporine, skin manifestations insufficiently improved, so etanercept therapy was started. Complete clearance of skin lesions and joint pain were achieved after 3 months of etanercept therapy.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: Currently, biomechanics and function comparison of the reconstruction of structures play important roles in the sternoclavicular joint stability is not much. In order to confirm the improvement in the functional aspects of the sternoclavicular joint after the three most widely used reconstruction methods, we measured the degree of anterior translation of the sternoclavicular joint after the operation using cadavers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied 24 sternoclavicular joints in the cadavers. First, we measured the anterior translation of the clavicle, which was compared with the sternum in 24 normal sternoclavicular joints. We divided the cadaver into three groups and performed each of the three current operations: figure of eight hamastring tendon reconstruction operation (Group 1), subclavius tendon reconstruction operation (Group 2), and hamstring tendon reconstruction operation (Group 3); then we compared the degree of anterior translation in each group. We did the measurement by adding 10 degrees to the glenohumeral joint each time from 0 degrees to 90 degrees. RESULTS: In the normal joint, the clavicle was significantly ascended compared with the sternum. The Group 1 had a 1.68±0.25 mm anterior translation while the Group 2 had 1.81±0.23 mm and Group 3 had 2.8±0.58 mm (Group 1: p=0.004, Group 2: p=0.001, Group 3: p=0.002). The Group 1 showed a low ascending rate of up to 60 degrees, which showed no significant difference with that of the normal joint. However, after 60 degrees, the ascending rate showed a significant increase. In the case of Group 2, there was no significant difference with normal joint of up to 50 degrees. Group 3 showed significant anterior ascending from 20 degree. CONCLUSION: Through measuring the anterior translation of subjects that underwent three representative sternoclavicular joint reconstructions, we found that the result from the Group 1 was most comparable normal translation of the sternoclavicular joint.

ABSTRACT

We report a case of fluoroscopy-guided intraarticular steroid injection for sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) arthritis caused by limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis (SSc). A 50-year-old woman diagnosed with limited cutaneous SSc presented with swelling and pain in the right SCJ. MRI revealed signs of inflammation consistent with right-sided sternoclavicular joint arthritis. After the failure of oral medications, we performed fluoroscopy-guided injection in this region. She reported complete resolution of her symptoms at 4 and 12-week follow-ups. This outcome suggests that a fluoroscopy-guided SCJ injection might be a safe and successful treatment option for sternoclavicular joint arthritis.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT The authors report on a case of tibial shaft fracture associated with ankle injury. The clinical, radiological and surgical characteristics are discussed. Assessment of associated injuries is often overlooked and these injuries are hard to diagnose. When torque occurs in the lower limb, the ankle becomes susceptible to simultaneous injury. It is essential to make careful assessment based on clinical, radiographic, intraoperative and postoperative characteristics in order to attain functional recovery.


RESUMO Os autores relatam um caso de fratura diafisária de tíbia associado à lesão do tornozelo. As características clínicas, radiológicas e cirúrgicas são discutidas. A avaliação de lesões associadas são muitas vezes negligenciadas e de difícil diagnóstico. Quando um torque no membro inferior ocorre, o tornozelo fica suscetível a uma lesão simultânea. É essencial uma avaliação cuidadosa baseada no aspecto clínico, radiográfico, intra e pós-operatório para recuperação funcional.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT The authors report the cases of two young patients who had suffered a sporting accident with posterior traumatic dislocation of sternoclavicular joint. In one of the patients closed reduction was accomplished by keeping the limb in a sling. The second patient, after reduction was done, presented recurrence of the dislocation, thus requiring surgical treatment. It is important to observe the relevance of computed tomography to help diagnosing, as well as monitoring the reduction procedure. The objective of this study was to demonstrate two different types of treatment in a rare injury such as the posterior dislocation of sternoclavicular joint.


RESUMO Relato de caso de dois jovens que se acidentaram no esporte e apresentaram luxação traumática posterior da articulação esternoclavicular. Em um paciente foi feita a redução incruenta e manutenção com tipoia. O segundo paciente, após a redução, apresentou recidiva da luxação, foi necessário o tratamento cirúrgico. Vale salientar a importância da tomografia computadorizada no auxílio do diagnóstico, assim como para monitorar a redução. O objetivo deste estudo foi demonstrar dois tipos diferentes de tratamento em uma lesão rara como a luxação traumática posterior da articulação esternoclavicular.

ABSTRACT

The prevalence of metastatic tumorous lesion at medial clavicle or sternoclavicular joint is low. Herein, we presented a 45-year-old female patient with left sternoclavicular joint pain followed a weight-lifting exercise. The patient was initially diagnosed as traumatic sternoclavicular arthrosis, however, on later computed tomography scan demonstrated the bony destruction of medial clavicle which was diagnosed as metastasized non-small cell lung carcinoma after a fine needle biopsy.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to evaluate the correlation between the location of the plate and the incidence of clavicular hypoesthesia and the clinical features of patients with clavicular hypoesthesia after open reduction and internal fixation of clavicular midshaft fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy-eight patients who underwent open reduction and plate fixation for clavicle midshaft fractures between March 2013 and October 2014 were assessed for eligibility. The total clavicular length (A), the distance to the medial end of the plate from the sternoclavicular joint (B), and the distance to the lateral end of the plate from the sternoclavicular joint (C) were measured. Correlation between the location of the clavicular plate and the incidence of clavicular hypoesthesia was evaluated. In addition, the severity, and recovery of hypoesthesia were evaluated. Patient satisfaction, pain visual analogue scale were evaluated regarding hypoesthesia. RESULTS: The incidence of hypoesthesia was 32.1% (25/78 patients). No correlation was observed with respect to the location of the clavicular plate and the incidence of clavicular hypoesthesia (p=0.666 at the medial end, p=0.369 at the lateral end). Recovery from hypoesthesia was observed in 23 out of 25 patients (p=0.008). Patient satisfaction and pain showed negative correlation with the incidence of hypoesthesia (p=0.002 and p=0.022). CONCLUSION: There was no correlation between clavicular hypoesthesia and the plate location. Although most cases of hypoesthesia were recovered, we should try to avoid hypoesthesia due to the negative 'correlation' with patient satisfaction and pain.

ABSTRACT

A 22-year-old man was hospitalized with a sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) dislocation caused by a traffic accident. Surgical reduction and fixation of the SCJ were performed using a T-plate. SCJ dislocation is rare, accounting for less than 1% of all dislocations, and is usually treated conservatively, although severe cases may require surgery. Surgery typically involves joint reduction and fixation using an autologous tendon graft, but this has disadvantages such as the requirement for additional surgery to obtain autologous tissue and an extended operative time. To overcome these issues, here, we performed a simple SCJ reduction and fixation using a T-plate and achieved good results.

ABSTRACT

Acromioclavicular (AC) and sternoclavicular (SC) septic arthritis with contiguous pyomyositis are rare, especially in immunocompetent individuals. We report a case of septic AC joint with pyomyositis of the deltoid and supraspinatus muscles and a separate case with septic SC joint with pyomysitis of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. Both patients had similar presentations of infections with Staphylococcus aureus and were successfully treated with surgical incision and drainage followed by prolonged antibiotic therapy.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: The transradial catheterization (TRC) is becoming widespread, primarily for neurointerventions. Therefore, the evaluation of radial artery puncture in clinical practice and a better understanding of the anatomy are important to improve the safety of neuroendovascular surgery. METHODS: Ten formalin-fixed adult Korean cadavers were dissected to expose radial artery (RA), brachial artery (BrA) and subclvian artery (ScA), bilaterally. Vessel lengths and diameters were meaured using a caliper and distance between the specific point of vessels and the anatomical landmarks including the radial styloid process, the medial epicondyle of the humerus, the sternoclavicular joint, and the vertebral artery orifice were also measured. RESULTS: The average length between the radial (RAPS) and the BrA puncture sites (BrAPS) and between the vertebral artery orifice (VAO) and the BrA bifurcation (BrAB) did not differ between sides (p>0.05). The average length between the radial styloid process (RSP) and the RAPS was 13.41+/-2.19 mm, and the RSP was 26.85+/-2.47 mm from the median nerve (MN). The mean length between the medial epicondyle (ME) and the BrAPS as 44.23+/-5.47 mm, whereas the distance between the ME and the MN was 42.23+/-4.77 mm. The average VAO-ScA angle was 70.94+/-6.12degrees, and the length between the ScA junction (SCJ) and the VAO was 60.30+/-8.48 mm. CONCLUSION: This study provides basic anatomical information about the radial artery and the brachial route and can help improving new techniques, selection of size and shape of catheters for TRC. This can help neurointerventionists who adopt a transradial neuroendovascular approach and offers comprehensive and safe care to their patients.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the technique and therapeutic effect of sternoclavicular hook plate fixation in treating sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) dislocation.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>From January 2010 to March 2014,6 patients with SCJ dislocation were treated with sternoclavicular hook plate fixation in our hospital. Among the 6 patients, 5 patients were male and 1 patient was female, and the average age was 34 years, ranging from 26 to 48 years. The course of the disease ranged from 3 to 20 days. All the SCJ dislocations were caused by external injury and accompanied with the symptoms of swelling pain and obvious shoulder joint activity restricted in affected side. All SCJ dislocations were anterior dislocation by the diagnosis of X-ray and CT scan. The postoperative curative effect was evaluated according to Rockwood score.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>All the patients' operative incision were healed well and in good appearance. X-ray showed that the dislocated SCJ was well reduced and the plate was on right position. All the 6 patients were followed up for 4 to 18 months, with an average of 12 months. The results were evaluated according to Rockwood score, 4 got excellent results, 1 good and 1 fair. No fixation loosening, redislocation or side injury such as vessel, nerve or pleura injury were found.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>With sternoclavicular hook plate fixation, SCJ dislocation could be reduced while keeping its amphiarthrodial function and the completeness of the cartilage surface. Sternoclavicular hook plate fixation has advantages of safety and stabilization in fixation, and patients can begin function exercises earlier.</p>

ABSTRACT

Sternoclavicular joint posterior dislocations are considered a very uncommon, and type of injury where if esophagus or airway injury occurs behind the clavicle, it poses a high risk to the patient. In addition, if epiphyseal fracture occurs as a result of the sternoclavicular joint posterior dislocation, surgical treatment is often required. However, in the absence of a complete ossification of the clavicle, it is difficult to differentiate between a simple dislocation and epiphyseal fracture-dislocation solely based on simple radiographs or computed tomography scans. In this case report, the authors present a case in which a sternoclavicular joint posterior dislocation was diagnosed in a 14-year-old male athlete. The case report discusses how the posterior dislocation without epiphyseal fracture was diagnosed using an ultrasound and subsequently treated with successful outcomes using manual reduction. The case report presents our findings along with discussion that includes a literature review of relevant research.

ABSTRACT

Ganglion cysts are most common on the dorsum of the hand or wrist, but they can occur in any part of the body. There have been few papers reporting ganglion cysts originating from the sternoclavicular joint, with most of these cases developing in children. A 76-year-old woman was referred to our department because of a painless mass over the right sternoclavicular joint. The mass was excised along with the portion of the sternoclavicular joint capsule surrounding the stalk. Histopathologic examination showed the cyst wall to be composed of compressed collagen fibers without evidence of an epithelial or synovial lining, which was consistent with ganglion cyst. To our knowledge, this is the first report of such a cyst in an adult. We consider this to be a useful report for surgeons that treat mass lesions occurring in almost any part of the body surface.
