Abstract

Massive acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) cysts are an extremely rare cause of shoulder impairment and with limited consensus in its management. We present the first published case report of a patient with a massive ACJ cyst treated with a reverse total shoulder replacement with minimal ACJ excision arthroplasty.

Keywords: Acromioclavicular joint cyst, massive ACJ cyst, reverse shoulder replacement..
