Buckley PJ, Jildeh TR, Abbas MJ, and Okoroha KR. Acromioclavicular Joint Reconstruction with Recessed Clavicular Implant Technique Guide. Arthroscopy Techniques 2021; 10(11):e2577-e2582.
Acromioclavicular (AC) joint injuries are common and often require operative intervention. Although there are many described surgical techniques, there remains a lack of consensus on the optimal technique. The purpose of this Technical Note is to provide our preferred method of AC reconstruction with a recessed clavicular implant and semitendinosus allograft, which mitigates hardware pain associated with arthroscopic techniques.
