In brief: AC separation
Treatment for ac separation depends on severity of the injury.
Ac separations are classified type i-vi. Type i and ii are all treated non-operatively. Type iv-vi are all fixed surgically. Type iii management varies depending on the patient. Some are fixed acutely, but most still managed conservatively.
