Background: Acute sternoclavicular fracture-dislocation is associated with high-energy trauma and is being increasingly recognized in children1 . These injuries are associated with compression of mediastinal structures and can be life-threatening1 . The management of acute sternoclavicular fracture-dislocation includes closed reduction or open surgical stabilization; however, limited success is reported with closed reduction2,3 . To our knowledge, there are no detailed descriptions of open reduction and suture fixation of acute sternoclavicular fracture-dislocation in children...

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. Even with the potential severity, a lack of consensus exists in the literature regarding the most appropriate treatment modality...

INTRODUCTION AND IMPORTANCE: Sternoclavicular joint dislocation accounts for 1 percent of the human joint dislocations. Sternoclavicular joint dislocation most commonly occurs in anterior or posterior dislocation. To the best of the authors knowledge, only six cases of superior sternoclavicular joint dislocation are reported in the literature. The injury is commonly missed. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a 28-year-old athlete with upper chest pain and right shoulder range of motion limitation...

We presented a case of primary lymphoma of the sternoclavicular joint. A 67-year-old woman with a history of swelling at the sternoclavicular joint region was considered as osteoarthritis initially. Chest CT found a soft tissue mass around the sternoclavicular joint. Biopsy demonstrated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The subsequent FDG PET/CT revealed FDG-avid articular destruction with surrounding soft tissue mass without any other abnormal findings, suggesting a primary extranodal lymphoma of sternoclavicular joint...

BACKGROUND: Efficient shoulder movement depends on the ability of central nervous system to integrate sensory information and to create an appropriate motor command. Various daily encountered factors can potentially compromise the execution of the command, such as fatigue. This study explored how fatigue influences shoulder movements during upper limb reaching. METHODS: Forty healthy participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups: Control or Fatigue Group...

The relapsing polychondritis (RP) patients with central nervous system (CNS) involvement were rare. We aimed to determine the clinical characteristics of RP patients with CNS involvement. The clinical data of 181 RP patients, hospitalized at Peking Union Medical College Hospital between December 2005 and February 2019, were collected. The patients were categorized into two subgroups: 25 RP patients with CNS involvement, and 156 RP patients without CNS involvement. The involvement of the ear was more frequent in RP patients with CNS involvement, compared with those of RP patients without CNS involvement ( P  < 0...

The SAPHO syndrome is not a single entity but an inhomogeneous, nosologically heterogeneous complex of symptoms with unknown etiology and heterogeneous pathogenesis. Clinically subacute, recurrent or chronic disease processes and a common skin-bone association (skibo disease) can be found. Under the acronym SAPHO, chronically recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is the most common disease that can occur in youth as well as adolescence. Spondylarthritis hyperostotica pustulo-psoriatica with the triad palmoplantar pustulosis, sternoclavicular hyperostosis and ossifying spinal manifestations is the most common SAPHO form found in adults...

Sprengel deformity is a rare congenital anomaly of the pectoral girdle of unknown incidence. Surgical intervention is indicated in moderate to severe cases having functional and cosmetic impairment. Various surgical corrective procedures have evolved over the past decades, however the extensive magnitude of some of the surgical techniques have sometimes resulted in an unwarranted worse outcome due to associated complications like brachial plexus palsy, scapular winging, sternoclavicular joint prominence, improper scar healing and keloid formation which restrict such procedures to experienced hands at few centres...

Sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) injury represents 3%-5% of all shoulder girdle injuries, yet can produce significant pain and disability. While conservative management improves symptoms in most cases, surgical intervention may be indicated for patients with symptoms recalcitrant to nonoperative treatment. A wide range of surgical stabilisation techniques is documented in the literature; however, the scarcity of SCJ pathology has hindered development of a 'gold standard'.We present a minimalistic medial clavicle osteoplasty and SCJ reconstruction using semitendinosus autograft anchored with unicortical sternal tunnels in the 54 years old with chronic SCJ instability...

INTRODUCTION AND IMPORTANCE: Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) includes disorders caused by compression of the neurovascular structures in the upper thoracic outlet (Roos and Owens, 1996 [1]; Bürger, 2014; Curuk, 2020 [3]). Depending on the compressed structure, it is categorized into neurological, arterial and venous TOS. SAPHO syndrome (synovitis-acne-pustulosis-hyperostosis-osteitis syndrome) is a rare chronic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology. With its typical involvement of sternoclavicular joint and clavicle, complication due to hyperostosis in this region, leading to thrombosis of the subclavian vein have been reported in some cases of SAPHO syndrome...
