The authors report the results of a long-term follow-up study of surgical treatment of Allman type III acromio-clavicular dislocation. Despite numerous publications regarding the validity of closed treatment, the authors believe, in accordance with the anatomo functional and pathological knowledge, that open treatment is justified not only in young people but in older ones too. Among the different techniques, the authors prefer acromio-clavicular fixation with threaded wires because the operation time is short and the functional results are good with the lowest number of complications.
