Coracoclavicular ligament is main restraint to superior instability of the distal clavicle. Coracoacromial ligament, extensor tendon of toe, palmaris longus tendon, and Dacron tape have been used to reconstruct coracoclavicular ligament. We used semitedinosus tendon to reconstruct coracoclavicular ligament. The semitendinosus tendon was harvested as a usual fashion. After the distal clavicle and coracoid process were exposed, a hole of six millimeter diameter was made on the center of whole thickness of the distal clavicle. A malleolar screw was fixed from distal clavicle to coracoid process to maintain the reduced position of the acromioclavicular joint. The leading suture of tendon graft was passed through the hole of the distal clavicle and looped under the coracoid process. After leading portion of ten­don graft was looped over the clavicle, sutures were made between each end of the tendon graft with nonabsorbable suture materials.
Key Words: Reconstruction of coracoclavicular ligament; Semitendinosus tendon
