What we can learn from this publication?
The case report presents an event of manubriosternal dislocation in which fixation was done with locking compression plate. It is a case of 32-years-old lady with a history of road traffic accident. The car ran over her chest. She had bilateral lung contusions with multiple rib fractures on right side and manubriosternal joint dislocation of type-I. The patient was initially stabilised in high dependency unit, and once her contusions got better, she underwent fixation of her manubriosternal dislocation with locking compression plate.
However, this case report will be a valuable addition to literature to achieve desirable outcome after surgical management of sternal fractures with titanium plate during the same hospitalisation.
