Acromio-clavicular Dislocation Type III - Conservative Treatment Versus Surgical Hook Plate Treatment

2014-07-23 21:09:26 | BioPortfolio


Acromio-clavicular (AC) joint dislocation corresponds to 8.6% of all joint dislocations and represents a major injury to the shoulder girdle. The nature of the treatment is decided according to the severity of the lesion.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the surgical treatment is required or not for type III AC joint dislocations.
