Seventeen patients with complete separation of the acromioclavicular joint were operated on acutely with transposition of the coracoid tip to the clavicle. All the patients were examined after a mean follow-up time of 7.5 years. Twelve patients had good function, 3 had slight pain in extreme positions, and 2 had poor function with pain at rest. Eleven patients had the screw removed, 2 of them because of deep infection. In 3 patients the coracoid tip fragmented during the operation. Two patients had an unsatisfying cosmetic result. As long as nonoperative treatment gives equal or better long-term functional results, we do not recommend this operation in acute dislocations.
