Abstract
While most Sterno-Clavicular Joint (SCJ) dislocations can be managed non-operatively with closed reduction, persistent or recurrent instability associated with pain or inability to work necessitates operative management. Here we present our preferred technique as well as a review of previously described methods for SCJ reconstruction.

Key words: sterno-clavicular joint, dislocation, figure of eight reconstruction
