Abstract

Summary:

Historically, surgical treatment of acute mid-shaft clavicle fractures has excellent outcomes with low rates of nonunion. More complex fracture patterns with significant comminution may limit the fixation that can be obtained with a single plate. The authors describe the surgical technique and case series of patients treated with extraperiosteal dual plating for acute mid-shaft clavicle fractures.
