Clavicle Case Study 10

This 38 year old man came off his motorbike at high speed on the race track and presented with a comminuted fracture of his clavicle. His 3D CT scan highlighted the extent of the damage and I operated on him two days later. The plate used is much larger than I would normally use as is the scar, however this was necessary in order to secure all of the fracture fragments. He told me he felt better as soon as he woke up in the recovery room. When I saw him six and a half weeks following his surgery his fracture has already healed in perfect position, he had a full range of motion and volunteered to prove he was already able to do push ups (watch the following videos to see for yourself!)
