Abstract

Dislocation of sternoclavicular joint is an uncommon injury of shoulder girdle. It generally follows a high energy collision or a sport-related trauma. There is no unanimity on what the most adequate treatment management should be for such lesions in medical literature. Conservative treatment seems to be the choice of action in case of anterior sternoclavicular dislocations. Surgical procedure is to be reserved for posterior dislocations, due to possible complications which could arise given anatomical position. We here by present a case report on a posterior sternoclavicular dislocation following a sports trauma in a 15-year old boy surgically treated with a stabilizing technique using PDSTM Cord. The functional recovery after a 12-month follow up is extremely promising.
