Repair of an Isolated Coracoid Fracture with Suture Anchor Fixation

Project Description

Coracoid fractures are rare injuries, which may occur in isolation or in association with other shoulder pathology. Although uncommon, if left untreated, a coracoid fracture will result in chronic pain and shoulder disability, and weakness as the conjoint tendon attaches here with 3 muscles. In regard to surgical technique, most reports describe the use of screw fixation, which has been associated with full recovery and high patient satisfaction. This video shows my preferred method to treat an isolated type II displaced coracoid process fracture through suture anchor fixation.
