Arthroscopic Management of a Coracoid Fracture Associated With Acromioclavicular Dislocation: Technical Note


Passaplan, Caroline; Beeler, Silvan; Bouaicha, Samy; Wieser, Karl (2020). Arthroscopic Management of a Coracoid Fracture Associated With Acromioclavicular Dislocation: Technical Note. Arthroscopy Techniques, 9(11):e1767-e1771.

Abstract

Operative management of a coracoid process fracture is indicated in case of painful nonunion, displacement of more than 1 cm, or multiple disruptions of the superior shoulder suspensory complex. Several techniques have been described with open reduction of the fracture and internal fixation using cortical screws with or without additional fixation of the acromioclavicular joint. This Technical Note aims to introduce an alternative safe, minimally invasive method for arthroscopic fixation of a coracoid fracture with simultaneously reduction of the acromioclavicular joint. The described arthroscopic technique might be helpful for shoulder surgeons who want to fix the coracoid process while avoiding the disadvantages of an open approach.
