Adult Clavicular Fracture Case Report
Clavicular fractures make up 2-4% of all fractures. While most are nondisplaced and easily managed, serious complications can arise from more severe fractures. In these cases, immediate surgical intervention is required. However, there lacks a consensus regarding the optimal treatment for fractures that are less severe. Here, we present a case of a 25-year-old male with a comminuted displaced mid-clavicular fracture. This report details the important clinical features of various types of clavicular fractures and discusses the current literature regarding indications for operative and nonoperative management.
