Background: The aim of study is to evaluate the effectiveness of surface marking in determining working portal for acromioclavicular joint pathology during shoulder arthroscopy.
Method: This prospective study was conducted in Walsall Manor Hospital from January 2015 to December 2017 during which 47 patient of shoulder arthroscopy was admitted with diagnosis of acromioclavicular joint pathology. Surface marking of acromioclavicular joint was done in every patient with the technique described below before starting shoulder arthroscopy, which later used for making ACJ portal.
Result: Out of 47 patient we were able to reach acromioclavicular joint in 45 patients with help of surface marking before shoulder arthroscopy which results in decrease in intraoperative time and complications in shoulder arthroscopy.
Conclusion: Surface marking of acromioclavicular joint by described technique is helpful in making acromioclavicular joint decompression portal during shoulder arthroscopy.
