Dual mini-fragment plate fixation for Neer type-II and -V distal clavicle fractures. OTA international : the open access journal of orthopaedic trauma Chen, M. J., Salazar, B. P., Bishop, J. A., Gardner, M. J. 2020; 3 (3): e078


Contemporary methods for open reduction and internal fixation of displaced distal clavicle fractures have excellent rates of union and high rates of reoperation for symptomatic implant removal. The authors describe their preferred surgical technique and case series of patients with Neer Type-II and -V distal clavicle fractures treated with lower profile dual mini-fragment plates using interdigitating screws placed into the distal segment to enhance fixation.
