AC Joint (Shoulder Separation)

Return to Play After Surgical Treatment for Acromioclavicular Joint Dislocation

Background: Acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation is a common clinical problem among young and athletic populations. Surgical management is widely used for high-grade dislocations (Rockwood III-VI) and in high-demand athletes at high risk of recurrence.

Long-term stability of coracoclavicular suture fixation for acute acromioclavicular joint separation

Purpose: The optimal (SBJI) surgical treatment for acute acromioclavicular (AC) joint disruption remains controversial. What is being presented is the long-term functional outcomes of a double cross-looped coracoclavicular (CC) suture technique with the intention of restoring both anteroposterior and superior displacement of the clavicle.

Anatomic Reconstruction of the Acromioclavicular Joint Provides the Best Functional Outcomes in the Treatment of Chronic Instability

Purpose: To systematically review the outcomes of surgical treatments of chronic acromioclavicular joint dislocation.

Return to sport after surgical treatment for high-grade (Rockwood III-VI) acromioclavicular dislocation.

Purpose: Acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocations are common in a young and active population, especially in people performing contact sports. Full recovery with a fast and high rate of return to sport is desirable. This systematic review aims to combine patient outcomes in order to help surgeons in addressing patient expectations regarding the return to sport after surgical intervention for AC dislocations.
