Weaver-Dunn’s operation for acromioclavicular injury yields satisfactory results in most cases. Although clavicular prominence can recur, it is not frequently symtomatic, but it can cause serious impairment of shoulder function in young and active patients. The authors performed reconstruction of coracoclavicular ligament with an autogenous hamstring tendon graft in a 31 years old electrician with recurrence of clavicular prominence accompanied by pain and limitation of overhead activity. The hamstring tendon and two coracoclavicular sutures looped under the coracoid process were passed through holes in the clavicle and around the clavicle in overreduced position. Even though clavicular prominence recurred somewhat, the modified UCLA score by Rockwood improved to 17 from 11/20 at 2 years after operation and the patient had no restriction in working as an electrician. Symptomatic patient with recurrent clavicular prominence after Weaver-Dunn’s operation can benefit from reconstruction of coracoclavicular ligament with a hamstring tendon.
Key Words: Acromioclavicular injury, Coracoclavicular reconstruction, Hamstring tendon
