Radiography showed a right distal clavicular fracture (type 2b according to Craig's classification [9]) with an avulsion fracture of the coracoid attachment of the conoid ligament (Figure 3(a)).
The investigators suggest that the medial edge of the bone tunnel for the reconstructed conoid ligament be created posteriorly on the superior clavicle at a point representing 30% of the clavicle length (measured intraoperatively), and the trapezoid ligament be centered over the midportion of the clavicle at a point 17% of clavicle length as measured from the AC joint.
