Abstract

Introduction: Posterior sternoclavicular joint dislocations are extremely rare and emergent injuries. Presentation of case: We presented a case of a seventeen-year-old male patient who was diagnosed with traumatic posterior dislocation. He underwent joint reconstruction using sternocleidomastoid tendon autograft, and the operation went well. Discussion: At four-week and fourteen-week follow-up post-operatively revealed a surgical wound that healed well, regained stable sternoclavicular joint that was marked by a normal left sternoclavicular notch, full range of movement of the left shoulder and the pain subsided. Conclusion: These findings provide evidence that the method of joint reconstruction and augmentation may produce good outcome for posterior dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint.
