Abstract

This study describes a minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis technique to treat acute displaced clavicular midshaft fractures using anterior-inferior plating. The technique assesses the fracture via a medial window and a lateral window without opening the fracture area itself. A 3.5-mm locking reconstruction plate is applied to fix the clavicle fracture, and reduction is achieved with a joystick technique using 2 threaded k-wires. The clinical outcomes of 19 patients with clavicle midshaft fractures treated using this technique are also described.
