Abstract:

Medial clavicle fractures are the least common type of clavicular fractures. Although rare, such injuries deserve rapid diagnosis and effective treatment to avoid future complications. An optimal, standardized operative treatment has not been yet established. We report a case of medial clavicle fracture, where primary operative treatment was indicated due to gross dislocation. An open reduction and osteosynthesis with a modified hook plate was performed, leading to an excellent postoperative outcome after a sixteen-month follow-up. The hook plate seems to be a promising approach for the operative treatment of medial clavicle fractures.
