Traumatic sternoclavicular (SC) joint injuries account for <3% of all traumatic joint injuries. Instability of the SC joint (SCJ) is a difficult problem to treat and can present with gross limitations in activities. Prompt diagnosis and intervention are imperative in the management of these fracture dislocations. We present three cases of posttraumatic SCJ dislocation treated conservatively and two cases treated with open reduction and internal fixation with reconstruction plate and its functional outcome and discuss the various modes of management of these dislocations.
