Abstract
PURPOSE
To evaluate and report the clinical and radiological outcomes of open reduction and internal fixation with a mini-T plate for unstable distal clavicle fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From December 2004 to July 2007, fifteen patients who had a fracture of the distal clavicle (Neer type II fracture) were treated with an open reduction and internal fixation using a mini-T plate. They were followed up for a minimum of one year and the clinical and radiological results were analyzed.
RESULTS
The average time to fracture union was 3.1(3~4) months. There were no complications, such as deep infection or fixation loss. The mean ASES score was 97 points (85~100points) at the last follow up period, and 14 patients had a full range of motion of the shoulder.
CONCLUSION
Open reduction and internal fixation with a mini-T plate for unstable distal clavicle fracture is a good surgical method with good clinical and radiological results.
