TREATMENT OF NEGLEGTED STERNOCLAVICULAR (SC) DISLOCATION WITH CANNULATED SCREW AND CERCLAGE WIRE OSTEOSYNTHESIS
Abstract: Reported a 18-year-old man road motor cycle accident. He presented to the policlinic orthopaedic department at dr. Zainoel Abidin General hospital with left shoulder pain. He was diagnosed with a left anterior SC dislocation neglegted. On physical examination, the patient loss of the normal anatomical contour with prominent of the left medial clavicle into the superior mediastinum was noted. A vascular examination was normal, with intact radial, ulnar, median, and axillary nerve sensation and function. Review of the chest postero anterior view revealed a dislocation of the medial clavicle with displacement of the medial clavicular fragment anterior to the manubrium. We treated with open reduction and internal fixation using cannulated screwing and cerclage osteosynthesis with favourable outcome up to one year follow up.
Key words: Anterior sternoclavicular dislocation, neglegted, cannulated screwing and cerclage osteosynthesis
