Triple-bundle reconstruction to offer advantages for acromioclavicular joint instability

Patients who underwent triple-bundle reconstruction for ACJ instability had superior horizontal ACJ stability than those undergoing a single-bundle procedure.

Recently published results showed superior clinical and radiological results with combined arthroscopically assisted anatomic triple-bundle coracoclavicular and acromioclavicular ligament reconstruction using an autologous semi-tendinosus tendon graft in patients with chronic high-grade acromioclavicular joint instability vs. patients who underwent single-bundle reconstruction.
