Autologous Semitendinosus Tendon Mediated Stabilization of The Coracoclavicular Space Results in Union and Excellent Functional Outcomes in Neer’s Type II Distal Clavicle Fractures: A Preliminary Report

SUMMARY Background. The treatment of Neer’s type II distal clavicle fractures is challenging because of the high risk of non-union with non-operative management on one hand and complications associated with the operation on other. Methods. Autologous semitendinosus tendon mediated anatomical coracoclavicular (CC) ligament reconstruction was done in 9 Neer’s type II acute distal clavicle fractures. The functional and radiological … Continued
