    Hi -
    Any help with this would be appreciated-

    "cyst was seen emanating from the acromion near the acromioclavicular joint - this was excised"--


  2. #2
    Were other procedures performed at the same setting or was this the only procedure performed? Was this done arthroscopic or open?

  3. Default
    open procedure-also states acromioplasty -- thanks for your help
