OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of suture anchor with clavicular hook plate in treatment of type Ⅱ fractures of the distal clavicle. METHODS: Forty patients with Neer type Ⅱ fractures of distal clavicle were treated in our hospital from May 2009 to May 2010, including 21 cases treated with suture anchors and 19 cases treated with clavicular hook plate. The time of fracture union and Constant Murley scores were compared between two groups. RESULTS: All incisions reached primary healing, and there was no infection or hematoma formation...

We present an atypical case of tuberculosis in an immunocompetent man from west Africa living in Europe. The patient entered the hospital with a painful lump of 3 cm on his right clavicule which he noticed 2 weeks before and back pain. During the examinations for further evaluation his condition deteriorated within short time. Tuberculosis was diagnosed, treatment started but he needed mechanical ventilation at the intensive care unit and had kidney failure. The further evolvement was favourable in the end but needed intensive treatment for over 4 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Theria (marsupials and placental mammals) are characterized by a highly mobile pectoral girdle in which the scapula has been shown to be an important propulsive element during locomotion. Shoulder function and kinematics are highly conservative during locomotion within quadrupedal therian mammals. In order to gain insight into the functional morphology and evolution of the pectoral girdle of the two-toed sloth we here analyze the anatomy and the three-dimensional (3D) pattern of shoulder kinematics during quadrupedal suspensory ('upside-down') locomotion...

Orthopedic surgeons apply metallic pins to stabilize the clavicule and humerus on a daily basis. Migration of these pins into the thoracic cavity is rare. We present the case of an elderly female patient, whose right humeroscapular joint was fixed with Kirschner wires due to recurrent luxation. Six weeks later, a follow-up X-ray revealed that the pins have migrated into the right thoracic cavity, confirmed by a CT chest. Videothoracoscopic removal of the metallic pins was not possible because of dense adhesions...

We present a new arthroscopic technique for chronic AC joint dislocations with coracoacromial ligament transposition and augmentation by the Tight Rope device (Arthrex, Naples, USA). First the glenohumeral joint is visualised to repair concomitant lesions, such as SLAP lesions, if needed. Once the rotator interval is opened and the coracoid is identified, the arthroscope is moved to an additional anterolateral portal. A 1.5 cm incision is made 2 cm medial to the AC joint. After drilling a 4 mm hole with a cannulated drill through the clavicle and coracoid a Tight Rope is inserted, the clavicule is reduced and stabilized with the implant...

We here present two cases of differentiated thyroid carcinoma with mediastinal lymph nodes metastases below level 106 according to the classification of the Guidelines for the Clinical and Pathologic Studies for Carcinoma of the Esophagus (9 th edition) edited by the Japanese Society for Esophageal Diseases. For Case 1, we adopted a conventional anterior approach with resection of the right half of the manubrium and sternum to the level of the second intercostal space and medial half of the right clavicule...

INTRODUCTION: Metastatic disease in the parotid gland has been observed and reported in the literature, and its treatment is controversial. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We review 48 patients with parotid tumors that underwent surgery during 1997-2004. The clinical and histogical features are reviewed. RESULTS: Among these 48, there were 12 cases of metastatic tumors to the parotid (25%). The pathohistological analysis of these tumors revealed that 8 were epidermoid carcinoma (66%), 1 patient was a melanoma (8%), 2 lymphomas below clavicules (16%) and 1 patient with a metastasis of a primary renal cancer...

The authors present the case of a displaced fracture of the coracoid process associated with a displaced fracture of the acromion, an undisplaced fracture of the clavicule and fractures of the first to fifth ribs. Open reduction of the coracoid process fracture was performed. At the last follow-up, the coracohumeral distance was restored (10 mm), but the acromiohumeral distance in the sagittal place was decreased (5 mm). The authors recommend open reduction of displaced fractures around the rotator cuff to limit the risk of impingement between the cuff and the coracoid process or the acromion...

A desmoid tumor of the shoulder girdle infiltrating the upper chest wall and weighing 1500 g was almost completely removed in an 18-year-old man, 27 months after a bifocal fracture of the clavicule. Thirteen years later, the patient was free of recurrence. The interval time between trauma and diagnosis, as the particular characteristics of aggressive fibromatosis, strongly support a major causal role of the clavicular fracture in the occurrence of this tumor.

A total of 50 arthroscopic distal clavicle resections were performed for acromioclavicular joint pathology at our institution between 1990 and 1993. Follow-up on 50 shoulders (100%) was obtained at an average postoperative time of 2 years. Data were collected via physical examination, radiograph review, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) shoulder score, and questionnaire. Average patient age was 42 years. Preoperatively all patients showed acromioclavicular joint tenderness, whereas 80% had a positive adduction test...

The authors report 7 new cases of congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicule. Clinical features are bearing out classical data of litterature. The disease is discovered during first months by the way of a clavicular swelling which settles mostly on the right side. But according to the authors the surgical treatment ought to be systematically purposed, restoring a normal morphology and avoiding any functional trouble. It consists in resecting the pseudarthrosis and grafting. This act is easy if done early, the ideal age being around 3 or 5...

The present study concerns a report on the observations of supraclavicular nerves with abnormal passage though one or several intraclavicular bone canals. The explanation of the formation of interclavicular canals is found by the normal development of the clavicle. In most of the cases the bone canals are situated in the central part of the clavicule and rarely at the acromial end. The canals are either superficial or deep. Often bone bridges are formed. The bone canals and the supraclavicular nerves are barely visible on X-ray photographs...

The authors report on a postirradiation osteosarcoma of the clavicule in a patient treated for thyroid cancer. The total absorbed dose to the right clavicule was estimated 149 Gy (60 Co and 18 MeV elektron beam). The findings are demonstrated on plain radiographs, CT-scan and bone scintigraphy. The literature on this subject is reviewed and the possible pathogenesis discussed.

The combination of an ipsilateral clavicule and scapula fracture causes a double instability of the shoulder. In opposite to an isolated clavicule or scapula fracture this injury should be treated operatively. Diagnosis of the scapula fracture in polytrauma can be difficult. If there is a clinical or radiologic suspicion, the indication for a CT scan is given. Osteosynthesis with plates from separated approaches, first the scapula from dorsal then the calvicule from ventral has proven good. The nervus suprascapularis must be treated carefully and, if necessary, liberated from the fracture...

Obstetrical fracture has not a bad character, because of quick healing and, above all, because of extraordinary modelling by growth. The authors record 33 fractures of long bones which confirm this good prognosis. 20 birth fractures of the clavicule associated with brachial plexus palsies are recorded on account of their pathogenic, diagnostic and therapeutic intricacies. Prognosis of obstetrical traumatic separation of the epiphysis (epiphysiolysis) would be more preoccupying. This feeling is not given off the series of 28 observations recorded which conern 13 upper humeral, 6 lower humeral epiphysis, 1 of 6 upper femoral and 1 lower femoral epiphysis, of upper and lower of tibia...

A case of a 71-year-old male patient with a branchiogenetic cervical cyst is presented. In addition to the clinical manifestation in the eight decade the speciality of this cyst was epipleural localisation. The longest diameter of the cyst was parallel to the right clavicule under the M. omohyoid. The cyst medially filled up the venous angle. Embryology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis as well as the therapy and prognosis are discussed in regard of cases of literature.
