Abstract:   (164 Views)
Background: Combined injuries of Mid-shaft clavicle fracture and Acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation are rare, and only a few cases have been reported. Several treatment options including surgical, conservative and hybrid approach have been described. Yet, there is no consensus regarding the optimal management approach for this injury.
Objectives: Here we reported a case of Mid-shaft clavicle fracture with associated type IV AC joint dislocation in a 29-year-old male following a cycling accident.
Methods: Both parts of the injury were fixed surgically. Meanwhile, the patient did not follow the postoperative protocol and started the heavy sports activities one month after the surgery.
Results: The patient showed up 6weeks after the surgery with slightly uncorrected AC joint. However, he was satisfied with the results and accordingly no intervention was done for the correction of the AC joint. 
Conclusion: Our case reveals the importance of adherence to the postoperative protocol in this combined and challenging injury and we recommend surgical fixation for such injury.
