Abstract
PURPOSE
This study examined the outcomes of closed reduction and fixation of the coracoid process fracture using a suture anchor in a patient with combined acromioclavicular dislocation for which the coraco-clavicular ligament was intact. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 26 year-old male patient with a coracoid process fracture that was associated with a type III acromioclavicular joint dislocation was operated on with anchor suture fixation. This is the first trial of this operative procedure.
RESULTS
At the postoperative follow-up at 3 months, complete union of the coracoid process fracture was seen. The shoulder had a full range of motion and the shoulder function was normal.
CONCLUSION
Closed reduction and fixation using one suture anchor for treating coracoid process fracture is a safe, effective procedure.
Key Words: Acromioclavicular joint dislocation; Coracoid process fracture; Surgical treatment
