The clavicle fracture that has united with deformity or shortening may have an adverse effect on normal shoulder girdle function. We report on 4 patients in whom a malunited fracture of the clavicle was believed to be a contributing factor to shoulder girdle dysfunction. In each patient, the functional status of the involved limb was improved after corrective osteotomy at the site of deformity, realignment, and plate fixation.
