Abstract

An arthroscopic technique for the surgical treatment of acute acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries is presented in this study. This procedure aims to achieve both vertical and horizontal stability through the healing of both coracoclavicular (CC) and AC ligaments. As a routine maneuver, arthroscopic CC stabilization was applied using the dog bone button to obtain only vertical stability. Additional arthroscopic AC joint fixation with suture tape augmentation is simple and easy and provides a safe technique to achieve horizontal stability of the joint and to increase the vertical stability to minimize the complications of standard CC reconstruction techniques.
