Abstract
PURPOSE
The proper surgical methods for treating acromioclavicular joint dislocation is still controversial. New methods should provide better early motion with sufficient strength. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed arthroscopic stabilization using TightRope(R) (Arthrex, Inc, Naples, FL) in 10 cases of acromioclavicular joint dislocation between April, 2007, and December, 2007, and followup for a minimum of 10 months. We performed radiologic evaluation by comparing the clavicle anteroposterior radiograph with the contralateral one. Clinical evaluation was made for pain, function, and range of joint motion by Imatani's methods.
RESULTS
In clinical evaluation, 6 cases were excellent, 3 cases were good, and 1 case was poor. In radiologic evaluation, 9 cases were excellent and 1 case was poor. Redislocation occurred in 1 case.
CONCLUSION
During short-term followup, 9 of 10 patients who underwent arthroscopic stabilization using TightRope(R) had excellent results in Imatini tests and radiologic evaluation, except 1 patient with redislocation.
Key Words: Acromioclavicular joint; Dislocation; TightRope(R)
