Clavicle fractures (upper extremity)
A 36-year-old male fell while skiing and sustained a right-sided displaced comminuted mid-shaft clavicle fracture.
He presented to us with ecchymosis and bruising near the fracture site and paresthsia in his right hand appearing to originate in the posterior radial nerve distribution without motor weakness. Operative reduction and internal fixation was performed with placement of a contoured 3.5 mm pelvic reconstruction plate.
He continues to return for regular follow-up and at 10 weeks radiographs show a healing clavicle fracture with maintenance of reduction and fixation.
