This randomised study compared outcomes in patients with displaced fractures of the clavicle treated by open reduction and fixation by a reconstruction plate which was placed either superiorly or three-dimensionally. Between 2003 and 2006, 133 consecutive patients with a mean age of 44.2 years (18 to 60) with displaced midshaft fractures of the clavicle were allocated randomly to a three-dimensional (3D) (67 patients) or superior group (66).
