Abstract
PURPOSE
We wanted to evaluate the clinical outcomes after operative treatment using two suture anchors and Kirschner wire for treating acute Rockwood type V acromioclavicular joint dislocation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between May 2006 and May 2009, 10 patients underwent surgical treatment for acute Rockwood type V acromioclavicular joint dislocation using two suture anchors and Kirschner wire and they were followed for a mean of 12.0 (range: 7-31) months. We analyzed the functional results by the Korean shoulder score, the Constant-Murley score and the reduction state of the acromioclavicular joint at the last follow-up.
RESULTS
All the cases achieved a satisfactory outcome. The mean Korean shoulder score was 89.9 (range: 81-100) points and the mean Constant-Murley score was 87.8 (range: 82-93) points. According to the radiologic findings, 8 patients achieved anatomical reduction of the acromioclavicular joint: there was a slight loss of reduction in one patient and a partial loss of reduction in one patient. None of the patients had deep infection or re-dislocation.
CONCLUSION
The operative treatment using two suture anchors and Kirschner wire may be used for acute Rockwood type V acromioclavicular joint dislocation, and it has an advantage in that it can prevent chondral injury of the joint.
Key Words: Acromioclavicular joint; Dislocation; Suture anchor; Kirschner wire
