Abstract

Sterno Clavicular Joint (SCJ) dislocations are rare injuries of the shoulder girdle. Their management is controversial due to a not guaranteed outcome after any kind of treatment (conservative or open). Open reduction is challenging because of the anatomical site, while the conservative treatment does not always improve pain or instability discomfort. We report a case of traumatic and painful anterior SCJ dislocation of a young policewoman treated with open reduction by a new surgical technique. Functional result is extremely good at 2 years of follow-up.
