Acromioclavicular Joint Dislocation
- 1.1k Downloads
Acromioclavicular joint dislocations commonly occur due to a fall with direct impact on the shoulder tip. The severity of the injury can be graded, and may guide management, but often clinical symptoms are more useful. Most can be managed conservatively, but operative intervention is sometimes indicated. Operative techniques and tips are discussed, including theatre set-up and radiological views often used.
