Posterior sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) dislocation is a rare cause of shoulder injury that can present with life-threatening mediastinal complications. This injury most commonly occurs in adolescents and young adults, and there is a lack of anesthesia literature addressing its anesthetic implications. We present 2 cases of posterior SCJ dislocations and discuss the anesthetic management and the potential for mediastinal injuries.
