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...

Floating Shoulder eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic100.htm

Ipsilateral fractures of the clavicle and scapular neck, or floating shoulder injuries, are rare. They result from high-energy trauma and have a high incidence of associated injuries, likely contributing to their underdiagnosis and undertreatment. Understanding the pathologic anatomy and appropriate treatment is important to minimize the sometimes-significant morbidity from this...
