The lateral end of the clavicle is fixed to the coracoid process by the coracoclavicular ligament, having the lateral trapezoid and medial conoid parts.
Tail short conoid with terminal portion narrow with smooth end.
The central surface between the two ridges can be a flat plate and conoid or might be designed based on the inlet entrance geometry.
In order to overcome these, a reconstruction of the conoid and trapezoid ligaments with the use of a free tendon graft seems to provide the most durable construct [2].
This may be because the tunnel direction becomes diagonal rather than vertical relative to the outer coracoid process anatomically when clavicle tunnels are placed near the conoid process, which leads to ineffective scapuloclavicular biomechanics.
The conoid ligament had been avulsed from the coracoid with a bone fragment of approximately 15 mm x 10 mm.
The superior surface is subcutaneous and the inferior surface presents an elevation called the conoid tubercle and a ridge called the trapezoid ridge.
(6) The CC ligaments, which consist of the conoid and trapezoid ligaments, serve as the main control vertical stability.
