Acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) dissociation is one of the common injuries affecting adults. The stability of ACJ largely depends on the integrity of acromioclavicular ligament, coracoclavicular ligament, capsule, trapezius muscle and deltoid muscle. The injury has been classified by Rockwood into six types and treatment options can be guided by the classification. TightRope fixation is one of the many surgical procedures available to address acromioclavicular joint separation. It consists of tensioning of a no...

BACKGROUND: Implant breakage after the fixation of traumatic fractures is rare; however, when it occurs, it is debilitating for the patients and a challenge for surgeons. The purpose of this study was to analyze and identify the independent risk factors for implant breakage of traumatic fractures treated with plate osteosynthesis. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of patients with a fracture to any part of their four extremities, clavicle, hand or foot, who underwent surgical plate osteosynthesis from January 2005 to January 2015, and who sustained a subsequent implant breakage...

Nina Pühringer, Jens Agneskirchner
We present an arthroscopic technique for stabilization of chronic acromioclavicular (AC) joint instability using a transclavicular-transcoracoidal button technique, combined with a coracoclavicular and AC ligament reconstruction using the gracilis tendon. This arthroscopic technique achieves an anatomic reduction of the clavicle without further implant removal. It ensures vertical and horizontal stabilization of the AC joint. Using a horizontal drill hole through the clavicle and looping the gracilis tendon graft around the coracoid avoids weakening of the coracoid with the risk of fracture...

Scapulothoracic dissociation is a rare, potentially limb- and life-threatening injury of the shoulder girdle. The injury is characterized by lateral displacement of the scapula resulting from traumatic disruption of the scapulothoracic articulation. The typical physical examination findings consist of substantial swelling of the shoulder girdle, along with weakness, numbness, and pulselessness in the ipsilateral upper extremity. Radiographic evaluation includes measurement of the scapular index on a nonrotated chest radiograph and assessment for either a distracted clavicle fracture or a disrupted acromioclavicular or sternoclavicular joint...

BACKGROUND: Although bacterial osteomyelitis (BO) is a commonly recognized diagnosis in pediatrics, it is often difficult to distinguish from nonbacterial osteitis (NBO). The goal of our study was to distinguish between the 2 disease entities and better define NBO. METHODS: Using the German Surveillance Unit for Rare Diseases in Childhood (Erhebungseinheit für Seltene Paediatrische Erkrankungen in Deutschland), this prospective study during a 5-year period captured 657 patients at first diagnosis of either BO (n = 378) or NBO (n = 279) while analyzing epidemiologic, clinical and radiologic data...

BACKGROUND: The surgical treatment of malunions after midshaft clavicle fractures is associated with a number of potential complications and the surgical procedure is challenging. However, with appropriate and meticulous preoperative surgical planning, the surgical correction yields satisfactory results. The purpose of this study was to provide a guideline and detailed overview for the computer-assisted planning and 3-dimensional (3D) correction of malunions of the clavicle. METHODS: The 3D bone surface models of the pathologic and contralateral sides were created on the basis of computed tomography data...

Objective: To assess the clinical results of the method of anatomic coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction for distal clavicle fractures. Methods: From August 2013 to January 2015, the super image system was used to measure the CT data of 16 patients suffering distal clavicle fractures before operation in Department of Orthopaedics , the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical Univerisity. The fractures' morphological features and acromioclavicular dislocation degree were assessed. By referring to the data collected by the my research group on Chinese people's coracoclavicular ligament, the injuries of the coracoclavicular ligament were estimated, which was then to verify the actual injuries detected during operation...

Objective Laboratory studies have demonstrated that impact protectors (IP) used in motorcycle clothing can reduce fracture severities. While crash studies have reported IP are associated with reduced likelihood of soft tissue injury, there is little evidence of their effectiveness in reducing fracture likelihood. This discrepancy might be related to IP quality. There are mandatory requirements for IP supplied with protective clothing in Europe, but not elsewhere. This study examines the energy attenuation performance of IP used by Australian riders...

INTRODUCTION: The clavicle exhibits considerable movement in three planes making rigid fixation challenging. The addition of a second plate may be considered to improve fixation rigidity, but risks compromising the blood supply to the fracture site. The purpose of this study is to assess if extraperiosteal dual plate fixation increases the rate of non-union, reoperation, and complications at 1 year for surgically treated acute mid-shaft clavicle fractures. METHODS: Between June 1998 and June 2013, surgically treated mid-shaft clavicle fractures undergoing open reduction internal fixation within 4 weeks of injury were retrospectively reviewed...

Acromioclavicular joint injuries are one of the most common shoulder injuries, and there are a variety of treatment options. Recently, there have been newer arthroscopic techniques that have addressed coracoid and clavicle fracture risk by using a knotted suture-button fixation through a single, small bone tunnel with additional looped soft-tissue graft stabilization. Although clinical outcomes have been good to excellent, there have still been instances of knot and hardware irritation. The described technique builds on the latest advances and achieves an anatomic coracoclavicular (CC) reconstruction through a single knotless CC fixation device with additional soft-tissue allograft reconstruction of the CC ligaments...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of clavicular non- and malunion is still challenging. Current surgical procedures often result in frustrating functional outcome along with high-grade subjective impairment and increased rates of revision surgery. However, the combination of biological augmentation with vital bone graft and a biomechanically sufficient fixation system seems to be a promising concept of treatment. METHODS: In this retrospective study, 14 patients with a mean age of 44 years (26-67 years) suffering from non-union (n = 11) and/or malunion (n = 3) of the clavicle were enrolled...

REVIEW
Ai Dong Deng, Marco Innocenti, Rohit Arora, Markus Gabl, Jin Bo Tang
Vascularized small-bone grafting is an efficient and often necessary surgical approach for nonunion or necrosis of several bones in particular sites of the body, including scaphoid, lunate, distal ulna, and clavicle. The medial femoral condyle is an excellent graft source that can be used in treating scaphoid, ulna, clavicle, or lower-extremity bone defects, including nonunion. Vascularized bone grafting to the small bones, particularly involving reconstruction of damaged cartilage surfaces, should enhance subchondral vascular supply and help prevent cartilage regeneration...

INTRODUCTION: Controversy exists on optimal operative treatment of vertically unstable Neer IIB lateral clavicle fractures. Aim of this study was to analyse and compare clinical and radiological results and complications of locking plate osteosynthesis (LPO) versus hook plate osteosynthesis (HPO) with acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) stabilization. The hypothesis was, that HPO would recreate coracoclavicular stability more effectively and potentially lead to a superior outcome. METHODS: This retrospective, observational cohort study included 32 patients (19 HPO, 13 LPO) with a mean age of 44...
