Abstract: Background: Clavicle fractures are common injuries in young, active individuals which were treated conservatively with a sling or figure of 8 brace. In the present study, we have treated displaced clavicle fractures with open reduction and internal fixation using anatomical locking clavicle plate.
Materials and Methods: All the patients were evaluated clinically according to DASH SCORING and radiologically at 5 months post operatively
Results: In majoring of the patient, fractures were united within 7 to 8 weeks. Mean union time is 7.3 weeks. Majority had FINAL DASH SCORE abound 32. All 20 patients had full range of motion at final follow up without any limitation
Discussion: Result of previous studies compared with present study
Conclusion: Precontoured Anatomical Locking Clavicle Plate is preferred for the treatment of displaced or non united clavicle fractures with better functional outcome and faster recovery compared to other modes of treatment.
