The involvement of the sternoclavicular
joint is uncommon, occurring in less than 4% of patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
Direct observations on the function of the capsule of the sternoclavicular
joint in clavicular support.
The latter patient also had evidence of metastatic infection with sternoclavicular
In July 2007, a female veterinarian (patient B) who lived in a different area of the same region and also had been scratched by a cat, sought care at the same hospital; she had a lesion close to the right sternoclavicular
As it was shown in the present case, chest X-ray may reveal damage to the lead body right at the sternoclavicular
region and intracardiac electrocardiographic detection of noise should not be neglected.
Accordingly, it needs to be remembered that whilst many studies refer to modeling and predicting forces at the 'shoulder', they are referring to the glenohumeral, acromioclavicular, sternoclavicular
, and scapulothoracic joints as if they comprised a single joint.
Dental abscess had preceded the onset of symptoms in 16 patients, left peritonsillar abscess in 2 patients, posttraumatic sepsis of the left sternoclavicular
joint in 2, and both pharyngeal and cervical lymphadenitis in 1.
The other joints involved in the shoulder, the acromioclavicular and sternoclavicular
joints, are important components to function of the complex.
Enhanced MR imaging of the shoulder, and sternoclavicular
and acromioclavicular joint arthritis in primary hemochromatosis.
The inherent strength and stability of the sternoclavicular
joint transfers energy to both the acromioclavicular and coracoclavicular ligaments.
The essential observation concerning shoulder motion discussed in both of these studies is that the acromion is joined near the center of the chest at the sternoclavicular
joint and that the other end of the clavicle is constrained to move on the surface of a sphere.
Zone 1--suprasternal notch to 1 cm above the sternoclavicular
