Acute acromioclavicular joint
dislocation-operative or conservative therapy?
Consistency of long-term outcome of acute Rockwood grade III acromioclavicular joint
separations after K-wire transfixation.
Diagnostic values of tests for acromioclavicular joint
If the scapula is sitting higher than normal then there will be some rotational strain at the acromioclavicular joint
After assessing the ROM, the next steps are to evaluate the rotator cuff and biceps tendon, perform impingement testing, check for instability, and finally assess the acromioclavicular joint
Migration in a lateral direction would cause damage to the acromioclavicular joint
whereas migration medially would simply lead to skin perforation.
Recently, Sahara and colleagues performed a three-dimensional (3D) kinematic analysis of the acromioclavicular joint
using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and observed that the scapula rotated 35[degrees] on an axis that passed through the insertions of the acromioclavicular and coracoclavicular ligaments on the acromion and coracoid process, respectively.
This report highlights the need for a high index of suspicion for associated uncommon injuries, such as coracoid fractures, when evaluating and treating common injuries such as clavicle fractures and acromioclavicular joint
The point of maximal tenderness was over the acromioclavicular joint
The pin will exit the lateral fragment under the skin posteromedial to the acromioclavicular joint
Subperiosteal dissection of the clavicle was performed, extending approximately 2 cm from the fracture site medially and a few millimeters laterally, in order to maintain the vascular supply to the small lateral fracture fragment attached to the acromioclavicular joint
The acromioclavicular joint
(AC) is a diarthrodial joint, stabilized by the coracoclavicular ligaments (conoid and trapezoid), the superior and inferior AC ligaments, and the AC capsule (Fig.
Cryptococcal arthritis of the acromioclavicular joint
Three scenarios were designed for rotator cuff disorders, two for frozen shoulder, two for glenohumeral instability, and one each for glenohumeral arthritis, acromioclavicular joint
injuries, and acute trauma with resultant fracture.
Radiographs demonstrated mild glenohumeral degenerative changes, acromial enthesopathy, and hypertrophic ossification of the acromioclavicular joint
