Abstract: Background: Non operative treatment of midshaft clavicle fracture has been reported with high prevalence of symptomatic malunion and nonunion in the recent studies. The purpose of our study is to study the union and functional result of displaced clavicle fracture treated with plating and to study the complications associated with clavicle fracture and surgical management.
Methods: We prospectively evaluated 32 patients who have undergone plating for midshaft clavicular fracture from January 2013 to June 2017.
Methods: We prospectively evaluated 32 patients who have undergone plating for midshaft clavicular fracture from January 2013 to June 2017.
Conclusion: In our study on 32 patients with midshaft clavicle fracture fixed with plating, we found that this technique provides a rigid stabilization of the fracture, leading to good fracture union. It also aids in an early mobilisation of shoulder, preventing its stiffness. Their outcome seems better than those reported with conventional conservative treatement. This surgical fixation of midshaft clavicle fracture also help in early rehabilitation, and are associated with great patient satisfaction.
