Abstract

The sternocostoclavicular region is frequently injured during chest trauma and the injuries are characterised by a blunt trauma more often than a penetrating one. The most common causes are car accidents and falls causing a direct blow to the chest, or a crushing or deceleration injury [63, 82]. Sternocostoclavicular injuries are sometimes associated with mediastinal lesions, whose prompt identification can lead to life-saving therapies.
