We have reviewed 30 patients who had been treated conservatively for acromioclavicular dislocation between 1979 and 1982 at an average of 12.5 years after the injury. All except one had a good outcome as did five others contacted by telephone. In all patients reviewed the acromioclavicular joint remained subluxed or dislocated. With conservative treatment a good long-term outcome can be expected without restoration of the anatomical configuration of the joint.
