Neer type 2 fractures of the distal clavicle have a high rate of nonunion and delayed union. In this series nine cases of coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction with Dacron graft material led to union at the fracture site. All patients had no symptoms and returned to full activity. This technique allows for stable fixation with early mobilization and return to work and sports.
