High-grade acromioclavicular (AC) injuries are frequent in the active population, and their treatment in the acute setting has reduced sequelae such as chronic pain, functional impairment, and inability to return to sports. Multiple techniques have been described to achieve reduction and fixation of the AC joint, but still there is no consensus. The objective of this Technical Note is to describe the reduction and internal fixation under arthroscopic assistance of the AC joint with the use of a double button implant plus high-strength tape in the acute setting.
