Author(s): Dr. Channabasava and Dr. Vaibhav Bhadbhade
Abstract: Fracture of middle third of the clavicle is greatly underrated with respect to pain and disability they produce especially during the first three weeks of treatment. It is also impossible to support and immobilize a fracture of middle third of clavicle in an adult by external means with figure -of- eight bandages. General information like name, age, sex, occupation and address were noted. Then a detailed history was elicited regarding mode of injury like fall on the shoulder, Road traffic accident, direct injury to shoulder and fall on outstretched hand. Enquiry was made to note site of pain and swelling over the affected clavicle. Past medical illness and family history were also recorded. In type-2 middle third fracture type-2 B1 (displaced with simple or single butterfly fragment) occurred in 18 patients (90%) and type-2 B2 (displaced with comminuted or segmental) fracture occurred in 2 patients (10%).
