Fractures of the middle third (or mid-shaft) account for approximately 80% of all clavicle fractures. Management of this group of fractures is often challenging and the outcome can be unsatisfactory.

There has been no prospective randomised trial comparing locked volar plate fixation with percutaneous K-wire fixation. In the… (More)
