Variation of the Arthroscopic Mumford Procedure for Resecting the Distal Clavicle


ABSTRACT: Fifty-seven patients had arthroscopic Mumford procedures for acromioclavicular (AC) pain unresponsive to conservative treatment. Thirty-nine of these patients had concomitant rotator cuff repairs. All had significant improvement of distal clavicular pain. Neither the amount nor the completeness of the distal clavicle resection affected the results. One patient with a significant retained lateral clavicular spike required additional surgery
for excision. Arthroscopic distal clavicle resection is a safe and effective method of alleviating AC pain.
