Minimum 5-Year Clinical Outcomes, Survivorship, and Return to Sports After Hamstring Tendon Autograft Reconstruction for Sternoclavicular Joint Instability

Authors: Peter Millett, M.D., Lucca Lacheta, Brandon Goldenberg, Marilee Horan, Sam Rosenberg, Jonas Pogorzelski, and Travis Dekker Abstract: Objectives: Instability of the sternoclavicular (SC) joint is a rare but potentially devastating pathology, particularly [...]

Minimum 5-Year Clinical Outcomes, Survivorship, and Return to Sports After Hamstring Tendon Autograft Reconstruction for Sternoclavicular Joint Instability

Sternoclavicular Joint Reconstruction Fracture Risk Is Reduced With Straight Drill Tunnels and Optimized With Tendon Graft Suture Augmentation.

BACKGROUND: Despite the rare entity of sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) instability, a variety of different reconstruction techniques for SCJ dislocations have been described. A technique with oblique drilling has been proposed to reduce intraoperative risks. [...]

Clinical outcomes after autograft reconstruction for sternoclavicular joint instability

Sternoclavicular (SC) joint stability relies on the presence of intact capsular, costoclavicular and interclavicular ligaments. Direct or indirect high-energy trauma is most often responsible for disruption of SC joint–stabilizing structures, thereby resulting in anterior or [...]
