 Abstract
Distal clavicle tunnel widening was observed in coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction with semitendinous tendon autografts in a patient with acromioclavicular joint injury. Acromioclavicular joint separation, in a 44 years-old man was treated by coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction. We have performed x-ray evaluation on 2years 10months after surgery. The immediate postoperative tunnel size was measured 4.5mm in diameter. At postoperative 2years 10month the tunnel diameter was from 9.3 to 11.4mm. But the weightbearing clavicle view showed no significant acromioclavicular joint separation. Moreover the patient complained only minor intermittent shoulder discomfort.
