RATIONALE: Clavicle fractures are common, and mostly occur in the midshaft. Methods for operative treatment of midshaft clavicle fractures are evolving, as they improve clinical outcomes compared with traditional conservative management. However, fixation of comminuted midshaft clavicle fractures with bone fragments separated by soft tissue remains a challenge. PATIENT CONCERNS: Here, we present a case of comminuted midshaft clavicle fracture with a bone fragment separated from the main fracture by soft tissue...

PURPOSE: Adult mid-shaft clavicle fractures are common injuries. For displaced fractures, open reduction with plate or intramedullary (IM) fixation is the widely used techniques. All methods have their own potential drawbacks, especially related to local soft tissue complications. There is little information about outcome and management of local wound complications after clavicle fracture fixations. METHODS: Ninety-seven patients underwent open reduction and internal fixation, 17 were treated with IM screw fixation and 80 with plate fixation...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical fixation of displaced midshaft clavicle fractures is predominantly achieved with intramedullary (IM) or plate fixation. Both techniques have potential pitfalls: plate fixation involves greater periosteal stripping and protuberance of the implant, whereas IM fixation may be associated with implant-related complications, such as migration or skin irritation, which may lead to further surgery for implant removal. The aim of this study was to compare these two methods in simple (Robinson 2b...

BACKGROUND: A common method in surgical treatment of midshaft clavicular fractures is the clavicle plating system. In addition to traditional osteosynthetic devices, anatomically preformed plate systems also exist. Advantages are described in greater accuracy of fit and less irritation of surrounding soft tissues. The purpose of this study was to compare the anatomical fit of five different precontoured clavicle plating systems. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The anatomical fit of five different types of anatomical precontoured clavicle plates, 3 times VariaxSystem® (Stryker, Kalamazoo, MI), Meves® Plate (Ulrich medical Ulm, Germany) and LCP clavicle plate (Synthes, Bettlach, Switzerland) were investigated in 20 embalmed human cadaveric clavicles...

INTRODUCTION: Bipolar dislocation of the clavicle, also called bifocal or pan-articular dislocation or floating clavicle, is an uncommon traumatic injury. The injury of this case is also concomitant with distal third clavicle and coracoid fracture. This article aimed to report the experience of performing osteosynthesis and early soft tissue reconstruction on these injuries. CASE REPORT: We reported a case of bipolar clavicle fracture-dislocation in concomitant with coracoid fracture in a man, aged 32 years old, successfully treated 24days after accident by fixation of both fractures and early simultaneous reconstruction of sternoclavicular- acromioclavicular-coracoclavicular joints...

A 49-year-old man with a 15-year-old nonunion of a midshaft clavicle fracture suffered from progressive tingling in his entire arm and fingers for two years, due to irritation of the brachial plexus in the costoclavicular space, especially upon elevation of the arm. After open reduction and internal plate fixation, all symptoms were resolved and complete consolidation of the fracture was achieved at one-year follow-up. This case demonstrates two things: brachial plexus compression can occur even many years after a nonunion of a clavicle fracture and union can be still achieved, even in a longstanding nonunion...

BACKGROUND: A symptomatic os acromiale can lead to impingement syndrome and rotator cuff tendinopathy. An acromion fracture is often part of a more complex scapular trauma that needs stabilisation. METHODS: We developed a new technique using a three-dimensional (3D) model and a distal clavicle reconstruction plate to treat os acromiale and acromion fractures. Our hypothesis was that such an approach would be a useful addition to the existing techniques. First, a 3D model of the acromion was printed, then an osteosynthesis plate was pre-bent to fit the exact shape and curve of the acromion...

In this paper, is described a new method of internal fixation for smaller bone fractures without comminution and with interdigitating ends, especially clavicle and forearm bones. Fixation and compression are achieved by a new technique called "the double noose loop". This fixation can be Temporary to allow placement of a plate easily. Or it can also be used as a Definitive fixation along with a splint. Faisal's double noose loop is a suture passed through bone and over fracture, with noose knots at both ends that are linked to form a loop around fracture...
