Abstract

A new operative approach is presented for treatment of fractured distal end of clavicle associated with recurrent anterior shoulder subluxations. One case is presented in which open reduction of the fractured clavicle and stabilizing the anterior shoulder joint were accomplished by transfer of the coracoid process with its attached muscles under the subcapularis muscle onto the clavicle. The operation was followed by complete reduction of the fracture and a stable shoulder joint.
