It is important to restore horizontal and vertical stability to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint when treating dislocations of this joint. Most surgical stabilization techniques of the AC joint have primarily addressed the coracoclavicular ligament complex; however, these techniques may not satisfactorily restore horizontal stability to the AC joint.
