This study was carried out on 7 cadaveric shoulders and was aimed to assess the effect of different clavicular anchorage points for the LockDown™ device on the reduction of acromioclavicular joint dislocations, looking at the optimal location.

This paper emphasises that correct positioning/placement of the LockDown™ device is crucial to obtaining the best anatomical reduction.
