Purpose: assessment of the clinical efficacy of isolated arthroscopic mini-Mumford surgery, associated with shoulder surgery in patients with degenerative disease of the acromioclavicular joint. Materials and methods: 52 patients (group A) underwent isolated arthroscopic mini-Mumford and 84 (group B) additional arthroscopic surgery of rotator cuff and/or long head of biceps. They were evaluated clinically using Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Simple Shoulder Test (SST) and Modified UCLA shoulder rating, pre- and post-operatively after a mean period of 18.1 months. Results: the results obtained in groups A and B overlap. Discussion: arthroscopic mini-Mumford is a simple, low-risk procedure, which has proved effective in treating degenerative disease of the acromioclavicular joint, both in isolation and in association with reconstruction of the rotator cuff and/or biceps long head tenotomy
