Abstract

Background: The hypothesis of this clinical study was that coracoclavicular (CC) reconstruction using autogenic palmaris longus graft through the GraftRope (PLG) system (Arthrex, Inc., Naples, FL, USA) would provide superior clinical and radiologic results compared with modified Weaver-Dunn procedure with the dynamic TightRope (Arthrex, Inc.) system (WDT).
