Treatment of Pediatric Mid-shaft Clavicle Fractures: A Prospective, Observational Study

2018-01-24 12:29:12 | BioPortfolio


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 epidermal risks or neurovascular compromise. Orthopaedic literature has many studies that report the need for additional research for this prevalent fracture. This is an observational study evaluating the functional and patient reported outcomes of displaced clavicle fractures in adolescents. The results from this study will help the orthopedist understand the expected outcomes for a given pediatric patient with a clavicle fracture.
