Distal clavicle fractures have low rates of union when treated with conservative measures. Operative treatment is generally recommended for Neer type II and V. Multiple fixation methods exist with no clear gold standard. The goal of the current study is to assess the outcomes and complications of distal clavicle fractures treated with one of three fixation methods: standard clavicular plate, hook plate or suture fixation about the coracoid.

Clavicle fractures are common injuries in adults, especially due to sport activities or road traffic accidents. Most lesions occur at the level of the middle-third presenting some degree of displaceme...
The optimal treatment strategy for clavicle fractures remains a topic of debate. We evaluated our step-wise treatment protocol for patients with clavicle fractures to determine our success rate of con...
Neer type-II distal clavicle fractures are unstable and are generally appropriately managed with operative fixation. Fixation options include locking plates, hook plates, and suture button devices. No...
Middle third clavicle fractures have long been managed conservatively with immobilization. Some patients, especially those with completely displaced or shortened clavicle fractures are now thought to ...
The authors aimed to characterize surgical and functional outcomes of open fractures of the distal radius in patients younger than 65 years. At their level I trauma center, the authors conducted a ret...
This is a multicentre randomized clinical trial prospectively comparing operative treatment versus conservative (nonoperative) care in the management of displaced distal (Type II) clavicle...
Clavicle fractures in children are common. Typical treatment includes nonoperative treatment with a sling. Operative treatment is usually limited to open, unstable, fractures with either e...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if poor bone quality increases the risk of specific types of treatment complications in patients with distal radius fractures treated with open red...
Clavicle (collar bone) fractures account for about 33% of all fractures around the shoulder. Some surgeons suggest that surgical treatment is the best option, while others suggest that non...
BACKGROUND. Distal radius fractures (FRD) are up to 17% of all diagnosed fractures and are the most commonly treated fractures in adult orthopedic patients. The management could be either ...
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.
Transverse sectioning and repositioning of the maxilla. There are three types: Le Fort I osteotomy for maxillary advancement or the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort II osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort III osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures with fracture of one or more facial bones. Le Fort III is often used also to correct craniofacial dysostosis and related facial abnormalities. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1203 & p662)
Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
