This study: “Complications of Clavicle Fractures Treated with Intramedullary Fixation” discusses operative technique for clavicle fractures using intramedullary fixation. Recent studies have demonstrated better outcomes with operative fixation of displaced mid-shaft clavicle fractures. We hypothesize that the risk of major complication with intramedullary fixation for clavicle fractures will be low. The study featured in this report analyzed 58 patients with clavicle fractures. All 58 were treated with intramedullary fixation.  The article discusses specific methods used during the study, patient data, and full results. It was concluded that patients with intramedullary fixation can expect smaller scars, no long-term hardware complications, and small potential for refracture or further hardware-related complications after hardware removal.Download a copy of “Complications of Clavicle Fractures Treated with Intramedullary Fixation” below.
