DURAN-CALLE, J J  and  CRISPIN-NINA, D. Functional and radiological assessment of the surgical treatment of the acromioclavicular luxation, by means of modified technique phemister vs technical 4 sutures. Cuad. - Hosp. Clín. [online]. 2018, vol.59, n.Especial, pp.9-14. ISSN 1562-6776.

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The injury of the clavicular acromion joint is one of the most frequent, perhaps because of its subcutaneous position and the relative scarcity of the muscles that protect it. They usually occur at sporting events, but they are also common in accidents or high impact traumas. They are produced by an indirect mechanism, usually by falling sideways on the shoulder, applying a lateral forcé in the acromion. OBJECTIVE: Determining the functional and radiological results in patients submitted to surgical treatment of luxation clavicular acromion with engineering modified Phemister vs technical 4 sutures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Case series study. 59 patients were studied of both sexes from 20 to 70 years of age, inpatients in the service of Traumatology and Orthopedic of the Hospital Obrero No 1, overthe course ofthe 1 one belonging to Januaryto December31 the year 2013. The functional (Imatani's Test) and radiological assessment of 55 patients operated on with the modified technique of Phemister and of 4 patients operated on with the technique accomplished 4 sutures itself. RESULTS: The patients operated on with the modified technique of Phemister obtained the functional results: 40,0 % excellent, 38,2 % good, 18,2 % acceptable and 3,6 % poor; And radiological: 87,3 % acceptable, 10,9 % poor and 1,9 % relapsing. And the patients operated on with the technique 4 sutures obtained functional results: 75,0 % excellent, 25,0 % good, 0,0 % acceptable and 0,0 % poor; And radiological: 100 % acceptable. CONCLUSIONS: It is observed a superiority of the technique 4 linked in relation to the modified Phemister technique, with respect to the functional and radiological results.
