The acromioclavicular joint has special anatomical structure and biomechanical properties. The coracoid process is the hub of the shoulder joint, which gradually attracts attention in the diagnosis and treatment of acromioclavicular joint dislocation. A 65-year-old woman suffered a car accident injury with painful left shoulder and restricted restriction for 2 days. Preoperative X-ray and computed tomography revealed dislocation of the acromioclavicular joint with coracoid fracture. According to the anatomical characteristics of the acromioclavicular joint, we used an suitable surgical approach to the anterior shoulder. The postoperative X-ray showed good reduction of the acromioclavicular joint, stable fixation and good fixation of the coracoid. At the 3-month follow-up, the patient reported relief of his symptoms. The incidence of acromioclavicular joint dislocation combined with coracoid fracture is low and the management is complicated. Understanding the anatomical and biomechanical properties (especially the mechanical characteristics of the coracoclavicular joint and the shoulder during injury) is crucial to successful surgery and avoiding intraoperative complications.
