Complications after surgical treatment of distal clavicle fractures.

Summary of "Complications after surgical treatment of distal clavicle fractures."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)
