BACKGROUND Numerous surgical techniques have been described to address injuries to the coracoclavicular ligaments. PURPOSE To compare the biomechanical properties of tendon graft reconstructions with those of the native coracoclavicular ligaments and various other repair methods. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Eleven fresh-frozen human cadaveric shoulders were tensile tested to failure to compare the biomechanical properties of the native coracoclavicular ligaments… CONTINUE READING
