Abstract

Six types of dislocations are discussed with specific pathologic, anatomic and radiologic findings. The first three types are the same as the Type I, Type II, and Type III lesions as described by Tossy and colleagues1 and later clarified by Allman.2 A Type IV lesion consists of a posterior dislocation of the clavicle that is grossly displaced superiorly toward the base of the neck. Type VI lesions comprise an inferior dislocation of the distal clavicle to a subacromial or subcoracoid position.
