Assessment of midshaft clavicle fractures treated by 3.5 LCP reconstruction plate
Keywords:Clavicle, LCP reconstruction plate, Quick DASH
Background: Fractures of the clavicle, which primarily occur in young males, constitute 2.6–4% of all fractures in adults. The present study was conducted to assess midshaft clavicle fractures treated by 3.5 LCP reconstruction plate.Materials & Methods: 98 cases of midshaft clavicle fractures of both genders were included. All cases were managed with 3.5 LCP reconstruction plates. Parameters such as mode of injury, Constant-Murley Score and Quick DASH and complications were recorded.Results: Out of 98 patients, males were 52 and females were 46. Cause of fracture was RTA seen in 60, sports injury in 25 and domestic violence in 13. The mean Constant-Murley Score was 91.4 and Quick DASH score was 12.6. Common complications noted were delayed union (11), superficial infection (5), neuropraxia (2), non- union (3), hypertropic scar (1) and vascular lesion (1). The difference was significant (P< 0.05).Conclusion: LCP reconstruction plate 3.5 in cases of clavicle fractures resulted in excellent outcome
