The condition was treated and resolved with conservative
Spontaneous Dislocation of the Sterno-Clavicular Joint
A description is given of 22 patients, with a spontaneous forward subluxation
of the sternal end of the clavicle, seen over a 5-year period. The
majority were middle-aged women presenting with a lump at the root of
Surgical Treatment of Dislocations of The Sternoclavicular Joint
Six patients with dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint are presented. Their main
complaints were chronic recurrent spontaneous dislocation and local tenderness
and discomfort during normal use of the shoulder. Two patients were treated according
to Browns modified procedure while four patients were operated with
Sternoclavicular dislocation: A plea for open treatment
I report 12 cases of dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint. Eight cases
were treated by closed reduction and redislocation occurred in five. The result
was good in five out of these eight cases.
A 'safe' surgical technique for stabilisation of the SC joint...
We present a
new, 'safe' technique of surgical stabilisation of the sternoclavicular joint that is not
technically demanding and does not require exposure of the first rib, as is often the case
in other methods described.
Spontaneous Atraumatic Anterior Subluxation of the Sternoclavicular Joint
We reviewed the cases of thirty-seven
young patients, ten to thirty-six years old, who had had
spontaneous atraumatic anterior subluxation of the sternoclavicular
joint. Sudden atraumatic subluxation is
quite alarming to the patient and the physician.
Resection Arthroplasty of the Sternoclavicular Joint

end of the clavicle to treat a painful sternoclavicular
joint in fifteen patients were retrospectively reviewed...We conclude that preservation or
reconstruction of the costoclavicular ligament is essential
at the time of resection...
Direct observations on the function of the capsule of the sternoclavicular joint...
...the ligaments of the sternoclavicular joint might play an important role in maintaining
clavicular poise, thereby explaining the decrease or absence of activity in the
trapezius in the fully depressed position.
Surgical Treatment of Chronic Dislocation of the Sternoclavicular Joint
Chronic, or recurrent, dislocation may
cause pain and disabifity on strenuous activity and necessitate surgical treatment. The operation of tenodesis
of the subclavius tendon with capsulorrhaphy described by Burrows (1951) has been adopted. The infraarticular
meniscus is often damaged and displaced, and may block reduction; its removal is then necessary.
Posterior Sternoclavicular Joint Dislocation
Traumatic sternoclavicular joint dislocation

whose diagnosis is often missed.1 The
posterior version of this dislocation has
been associated with multiple complications...
Operation For Old Sternoclavicular Dislocation
Twelve patients were operated upon after unsuccessful conservative treatment for complete dislocation
of the sternoclavicularjoint. Three methods were used; stabifisation using fascial loops, reconstruction with a
tendon graft, and resection of the sternal end of the clavicle.
Spontaneous Dislocation of The Sternoclavicular Joint
Simplicity and innocence appear to be as disarming to
the medical author as they are to the novelist, and this
explains why no reference to the condition of slow,
painless subluxation of the sternoclavicular joint in
elderly people has been found in the literature until the
appearance of the paper by Bremner (1959).
A Case of Sternoclavicular Dislocation with Scapulothoracic Dissociation

as traumatic floating clavicle, double dislocation of the
clavicle or pan-clavicular dislocation ; unlike those
previously described the injury was the result of a minor
fall at home...

Pain Referral From The Sternoclavicular Joint: A Study in Normal Volunteers
Case reports suggest that it may refer pain to distant areas, potentially leading to delays in disgnosis and inapproproately targeted investigations. Therefore, we studied the patterns of pain referral from the SCJ of nine healthy volunteers.

articular aging in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis, a problem which
has been under discussion for a long time.'-6 Moreover, it was intended
to study the changes in the ground substance...
The Sternoclavicular Joint: The Appendicular Axial Anchor
It may seem strange but the sternoclavicular joint creates a certain degree of excitement on my part. This is not in a fetishist way but from an orthopaedic perspective. Clinically speaking, it is a very overlooked and under treated joint of large significance.
Sternoclavicular Dislocation: Trauma Round Interview
When seen in the outpatient department one week later he
still complained of pain on moving his
right shoulder, particularly on abduction. Three weeks later he presented
with similar complaints. A lump was
now noted over the right sternoclavicular area and further x-rays
Congenital Retrosternal Subluxation of the Clavicle Simulating an Intrathoracic Mass
A rare case of bilateral congenital netnostennal subluxations
of the medial ends of the clavicles was discovered,
and is being reported, because of its disturbing appearance
on a routine frontal chest x-ray. To my knowledge,
no similar case has been documented.
Posterior sternoclavicular dislocation: an American football injury
Posterior dislocation of the sternoclavicular
joint is uncommon, accounting
for less than 0-11% of all dislocations. Since
1824 a little more than 100 cases have
been reported, and the majority in the
past 20 years. A review of published
reports suggests that this injury is seen
particularly in connection with American
Posterior sternoclavicular joint dislocation: case report and discussion

dislocation who presented to the emergency department 2 months after being hit in
the posterior neck. We also review the signs, symptoms and management of posterior sternoclavicular
Posterior sternoclavicular dislocation in a rugby player as a cause of silent vascular compromise: a case report
We describe a case in which there was no
clinical evidence of complication, although CT imaging
revealed complete obstruction of the brachiocephalic vein
and impingement of the aorta. This required open reduction...
Retrosternal dislocation of the clavicle: an important injury easily missed
Dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint is an uncommon injury. The anterior displacement
is well recognized but posterior displacement is much more unusual, one per 1600
cases of shoulder trauma (Rowe & Marble, 1958).
Early diagnosis is important as this affects ease of reduction...
