Recent literature recommends consideration of surgical treatment for completely displaced and shortened middle-third clavicle fractures. Intramedullary clavicle fracture fixation has been shown to be an effective option for treatment. While traditional plate constructs have been successful, hardware removal due to symptomatic prominence has been reported. Intramedullary fixation offers a lower profile solution, which can be performed through a smaller incision.
