From: Different treatment strategies for acromioclavicular dislocation injuries: a nationwide survey on open/minimally invasive and arthroscopic concepts

  Types I/II Type III OR 95% CI p
n = 95, % n = 40, %
Non-operative treatment
 Sling immobilization 61.1 70 0.7 0.3–1.5 ns
 Tape immobilization 2.1 2.5 0.8 0.07–9.5 ns
 Oral analgesic 23.2 10 2.7 0.8–8.5 ns
 Physical therapy 2.1 2.5 0.8 0.07–9.5 ns
 Figure of eight dressing 2.1 5 0.4 0.05–3.0 ns
 Others 9.5 10 0.9 0.3–3.2 ns
  1. The most preferred treatment is sling mobilization, followed by no immobilization combined with oral analgesic treatment. No significant differences between the groups types I/II and type III were found
