Synopsis: 
The Modified Cadenat procedure could provide satisfactory therapeutic results and avoid postoperative failure of reduction compared to the modified Dewar procedure. However, the modified Cadenat procedure does not aim to restore the anatomical coracoclavicular ligaments. We believe that anatomic restoration of both coracoclavicular ligaments could best restore the function of the acromioclavicular joint.

ABSTRACT

 Aim and Background: The surgical treatment for acromioclavicular joint dislocations is recommended for Rockwood’s classification types 4, 5 and 6. In this study, we evaluated the therapeutic results of the modified Cadenat procedure on type 5 acromioclavicular joint dislocation and report on a comparative study to the modified Dewar procedure also on type 5 acromioclavicular joint dislocation.
