It is the study of mid shaft clavicle fracture treated with anatomical locking plates. We wanted to study to study the surgical management and to assess its functional outcome in displaced mid-shaft clavicular fractures. To study the duration of union, complications and compare the results of operated cases with other operative study and conservative study.
Materials and Method: The study consist of 100 patients with mid shaft clavicle fracture. We have treated patient with anatomical locking plates. Clinical outcome and function results were evaluated by Constant and Murley scoring system.
Result: We have operated total 100 cases with anatomical plate in mid-shaft clavicle fractures. Average union time was 11.7 week. We have achieved 80% of excellent result.
Conclusion: Anatomical plate for mid-shaft clavicle fracture are as per shape of the bone. Anatomical reduction is possible and axial alignment and rotational stability is provided. As plates have groove on inner surface so it preserves the periosteal blood supply which will help in faster healing of the bone. Rigid fixation with plate and screws for fresh displaced or comminuted middle third clavicle fracture gives immediate pain relief and prevents the development of shoulder stiffness and non union.
