Tanveer Ahmed Bhat, Zubair A. Lone

Abstract


Clavicle fractures are common adult injuries. Middle third of the clavicle is most commonly fractured. The management options are varied. In our study, we included 45 cases of unilateral clavicle fractures and managed them with open reduction internal fixation using clavicular plates. We achieved excellent to good results among 42 patients (93.33%) with minimal complications. Hence, we recommend the management of displaced clavicle fractures with open reduction internal fixation with plating.
