Abstract

In adults fractures of clavicle are common, around 2.6 –4% of all fractures and approximately 35% of all injuries around shoulder. Fractures of the mid shaft of clavicle account for 69–82%, lateral fractures aroundo21–28% and medial fractures around 2–3%. The usual treatment of clavicle fracture is conservative. But there are studies suggesting the complications if the clavicle fracture is not treated properly. Having worried about the complications of malunion and non-union the study has focussed on the open reduction and internal fixation. This prospective study involved thirty patients with completely displaced midclavicular fractures of which twenty-nine fresh fractures and one non-union who underwent open reduction and internal fixation with superior plating. The fracture was classified according to Allman system. The displacement was evaluated using an anteroposterior X-ray view of the shoulder. Evaluated by Constant–Murley Shoulder Score system. 67% of fracture occurred in left side. Nearly 87% had no complication. Nearly 40% of study subjects have Murley score of 98. About 17% have score of 96. Open reduction internal fixation helps in early mobilization of shoulder, preventing stiffness and are associated with great patient satisfaction.
