: To describe a technique of the modified Neviaser method and to evaluate the clinical outcome of the technique in the treatment of the complete acromioclavicular joint dislocation. Materials and Method : We evaluated 20 patients who were treated by a modified Neviaser method from June 1996 to January 1999. They were followed up for a minimum of two years. The operative technique includes fixation of the acromioclavicular joint, repair of coracoclavicular ligament and transfer of the anterolateral band of coracoacromial ligament. Results : The 20 patients were evaluated clinically using Kang’s criteria. The satisfactory results obtained in 85%. The mean coracoclavicular interval ratio was decreased from 2.22 preoperatively to 1.07 postoperatively. At the time of two year follow-up, the mean ratio was 1.20. There was no definite complication such as re-dislocation of the joint. Conclusion : In above type 3 acromioclavicular dislocation, the modified Neviaser method provided the advantage of strong and stable fixation with a low complication rate. Therefore, it is thought to be one of the useful operative technique.
