A prospective randomised study was made of 20 patients who underwent acromioplasty for the chronic impingement syndrome. Ten were operated on by Neer's technique and 10 with a modification where the deltoid origin was spared. Rehabilitation was more rapid with a better range of movement in the latter group. Acromioplasty with this modification offers benefits compared with the standard procedure.
