Temporary Sternoclavicular Stabilization Using an Innovative Blocking Technique with Kirschner Wires for the Treatment of Posterior Sternoclavicular Joint Injury in Adolescent Patients

A Report of Two Cases

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

CASE: A 15-year-old boy with a posterior physeal fracture-dislocation of the medial aspect of the clavicle and a 14-year-old boy with a posterior sternoclavicular joint dislocation were successfully treated with temporary sternoclavicular stabilization using an innovative blocking technique with Kirschner wires. CONCLUSION: When treating posterior sternoclavicular joint injuries, posterior instability should be securely stabilized. Temporary blocking stabilization of the sternoclavicular joint using Kirschner wires does not rigidly fix the sternoclavicular joint, but it prevents posterior displacement of the proximal aspect of the clavicle. This stabilizing technique is a simple, safe, and viable treatment option for adolescent patients with a posterior sternoclavicular joint injury.
