The treatment of acromoclavicular subluxation (Tossy's type I and II) is not controversial, but there is, no consensus as to whether Tossy's type III should be treated conservatively or surgically.
Since 1979, we have treated 40 cases of acromioclavicular dislocation and have evaluated 29 of these patients, with a follow-up of over 1 year.
There were 8 cases of type I, r cases of type II, and 13 cases of type III. All type I and II cases were treated conservative and achieved excellent results. Of the patients with a type III dislocation, the following results were achieved: Using conservative treatment, 1 case was excellent, 2 were good, 1 was fair and 2 were poor. The outcome for the 7 who received surgical treatment, was 5 cases were excellent and 2 were good.
