OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the curative effects of AO clavicular hook plate in the treatment of dislocation of acromioclavicular joint and fracture of distal clavicle.

METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 39 patients with acromioclavicular joint dislocation or distal clavicle fractures treated with clavicular hook plate: 16 suffered from dislocation of acromioclaviculr joint, 18 suffered from far end collarbone fractures, and 5 patients had both symptoms.

RESULTS: The 39 patients were followed up for 12 months averagely. All patients got good reduction and fixation. The acromioclavicular joint subluxation, breakage, and loosening of the clavicular hook plate were not observed. The acromioclavicular joint recovered quickly.

CONCLUSION: AO clavicular hook plate is a good choice for acromioclavicular joint dislocation and distal clavicular fracture.
