Role of precontoured clavicle plate in clavicular fractures

Author(s): Dr. Krishna Kumar MS and Dr. Rajesh P
Abstract: Plate prominence was noted in 2 patients at the end of 6 months though their functional outcome was on par with excellence according to the scoring scale. There was one case of non-union among the operated group at the end of 1 year. There were no catastrophic complications such as brachial plexus injury, vascular injury or pneumothorax. Common reason for re-intervention is implant failure. Patients were more satisfied with shoulder in terms of functional outcome. Early primary plate fixation results in improved patient outcome, return of function and decreased chances of nonunion and malunion
