Title:
Risk of fracture of the acromion depends on size and orientation of acromial bone tunnels when performing acromioclavicular reconstruction. 
Abstract:
Current techniques for anatomic repair of the dislocated acromioclavicular (AC) joint aim on reconstruction of the AC ligaments and utilize tunnels drilled through the acromion . This improves the stability of the reconstruction but might also increase the risk of fractures at the acromion. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the fracture risk for the acromion after transacromial tunnel placement for anatomic AC joint stabilization procedure. It was hypothesized that the risk of fracture o...    »
