Author(s): Dr. Rajneesh Garg, Satyanarayan Shukla and Navratan Dipu
Abstract: Objective: A common cause of shoulder pain in the young athletic male is Acromioclavicular (AC) joint separations, so reconstruction measures may be designated for efficient enhancement. A multitude of surgical reconstruction techniques exist.
Material and method: 15 patients of AC joint dislocation with type IV and V injury were treated by a technique using a Palmaris longus autograft in reduction and fixation of the joint.
Result: Postoperatively, pain and deformity was vanished, no superior relocation was noted even after three years of primary surgery, no infection and no restricted range of motion was noted.
Conclusion: The anatomic reconstruction of the coracoclavicular ligaments with grafts validates promising clinical and biomechanical effects.
