A Minimally Invasive Surgical Technique to Treat Distal Clavicle Fractures

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.asp?rid=41205

This article describes a minimally invasive technique used for the treatment of distal clavicle fractures. The technique uses a double-button device that stabilizes the fracture and does not require subsequent hardware removal.

Arthroscopic Fixation of a Type II–variant, Unstable Distal Clavicle Fracture

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.asp?rID=32937

Nonunion is a relatively common outcome of nonoperative treatment of unstable distal clavicle fractures. Although not all nonunions are symptomatic, a comparative study showed that patients treated nonoperatively had higher incidences of local complications, residual shoulder dysfunction, and nonunion than those treated by open reduction and internal fixation. Therefore, many...

Fractures of the distal third of the clavicle treated by hook plating

Location: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=2254672

We retrospectively assessed the union and shoulder function following hook plate fixation in 18 patients with Neer type 2 fractures of the lateral end of the clavicle. The average age was 40 (range 22–62) years, and the mean follow-up was 25 (range 6–48) months. Fifteen patients had acute fractures and...

Percutaneous fixation in fractures of the distal third of the clavicle

Location: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=2267535

comment on the article by AD Tambe et al.
Percutaneous fixation using a malleolar screw, a cannulated screw or a simple K-wire is a minimally invasive procedure. Also these procedures have the advantage of ease of application, simplicity, cheapness and high rate of union

Trapezius interposition of a distal third clavicular fracture in a child

Location: http://www.josonline.org/PDF/v9i1p67.pdf

We report an 11-year-old child with fracture of the distal clavicle who was denied conservative treatment because the medial end of the clavicle was anchored into the trapezius muscle fiber by an extreme posterior displacement. Surgical reduction was indicated.
