Acromioclavicular Reconstruction using Autogenous Semitendinosus Tendon Graft and the Importance of Postoperative Rehabilitation: A Case Report.

Ho JP, Ahmad Faizal A, Sivapathasundaram N - Malays Orthop J (2013)

Bottom Line: We present a case of chronic acromioclavicular joint dislocation (Rockwood type 5) in which the choice of acromioclavicular reconstruction using autogenous semitendinosus tendon graft was made due to its superiority in anatomical reconstruction of the coracoclavicular ligaments, and the impact of postoperative rehabilitation on the recovery of this patient.We also discuss the rationale behind this. acromioclavicular joint dislocation, acromioclavicular reconstruction, autogenous semitendinosus tendon graft, rehabilitation approach.

F1a: : Pre operative radiograph showing superior displacementof he clavicle and undisplaced distal clavicle fracture.

Mentions: A 29-year old male presented to our outpatient departmentthree months after being involved in a motor vehicle accidentin which he fell off his motorcycle and landed on his leftshoulder. He complained of persistent left shoulder pain which did not go away despite rest and analgesics. Onexamination, the distal part of the left clavicle was noted tobe prominent and there was mild tenderness over theacromioclavicular joint (ACJ). He was unable to abduct hisleft shoulder beyond 90 degrees. Radiographic studies of theleft shoulder revealed a disrupted ACJ (Rockwood type V;see Figure 1(a)). The patient agreed for surgery two monthslater but unfortunately it was delayed until one year posttrauma due to unavoidable circumstances.
