The clavicle has a complex osteologic structure that makes morphological analysis extremely difficult. A three‐dimensional study was conducted to examine the anatomical variations and characteristics of the bone. Sixty‐eight human cadaver clavicles were dissected, CAT‐scanned, and reconstructed. An automated parameterization and correspondence shape analysis system was developed. A new length, designated as centerline (CL) length, was defined and measured. This length represents the true length… Expand
Anatomical Study of the Clavicles in a Chinese Population
TLDR
Clavicles in males were longer, wider, and thicker than in females; also males have different curvatures in both planes compared with females; the men's intramedullary canals and sectional areas of the clavicle were larger than those of women. Expand
Anatomical Measurements of the Distal Clavicle in a Kenyan Population
TLDR
Designers of clavicular implants should consider these measurements and surgeons involved in fixation of acromoclavicular joints fractures should consider the distances between conoid and trapezoid tuberosity. Expand
Investigations of cortical and cancellous clavicle bone patterns reveal an explanation for the load transmission and the higher incidence of lateral clavicle fractures in the elderly: a CT-based cadaveric study
TLDR
Characteristics in the cortical and cancellous bone ratios and canceous bone patterns might shed light on understanding the fractures in the lateral portion of the clavicle in the elderly. Expand
The variance of clavicular surface morphology is predictable: an analysis of dependent and independent metadata variables
TLDR
This anatomic analysis shows that the clavicle shape can be predicted through theClavicle length and patients' stature, which will aid surgeons in fracture reduction, implant curvature selection, and in optimal adaptation ofclavicle implants. Expand
Analysis of the bony geometry of the acromio-clavicular joint
TLDR
It is assumed that the shown differences of the AC joint congruency might play an important role in the development of different shoulder injuries resulting from the similar trauma mechanism. Expand
Anatomy of clavicle in the Indian population and its applicability in pre-contoured plating
Background Fractures of the clavicle are traditionally treated non-operatively, but with the increase of high-energy trauma, there has been an increase in the operative management of these fractures.Expand
Sagittal orientation of coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction affects the stability of surgical repair.
TLDR
The anatomic orientation of the native coracoclavicular ligaments is highly variable in the sagittal plane, which can reduce anterior stability, whereas high sagittal angles can reduce posterior stability of CCLR. Expand
Anatomy of the Clavicle and Its Articulations
TLDR
The clavicle is a unique bone that connects the axial skeleton to the shoulder girdle via the sternum medially and the scapula laterally and functions as a strut and also provides an anchor point for glenohumeral, acromioclavicular, and scapulothoracic motion. Expand
Image Analysis on Clavicle Bone for Indonesian Clavicle Implant Design
TLDR
The image analysis using 3D Slicer and Radiant Viewer can give a specific number in the parameter of diameter, length, and curve that can be a recommendation for designing and manufacturing the clavicle implants based on the patient data. Expand

Anatomic variation of the clavicle: A novel three‐dimensional study
TLDR
3D statistical shape analysis and applying it to the clavicle standardizes the study of its anatomy, rules out any variability, and calculates morphological parameters that are accurate, precise, and reproducible. Expand
Anatomy of the clavicle and the intramedullary nailing of midclavicular fractures
TLDR
The clavicle displays definite gender‐ and side‐specific anatomical features in terms of length, diameter, curvature, and calcium concentration, which should be considered when performing intramedullary fixation. Expand
Clavicular anatomy and the applicability of precontoured plates.
TLDR
The anatomic precontoured clavicular plate appears to fit the S-shaped curvature on the superior surface of the majority of clavicles in male patients but may not be as conforming in white female patients. Expand

TLDR
A novel method that examines the major modes of size and three-dimensional shape variation in male and female clavicles and suggests a method of grouping the clavicle into size and shape categories is presented. Expand
The effect of experimental shortening of the clavicle on shoulder kinematics.
TLDR
The kinematic changes that occur in the shoulder girdle due to clavicle shortening are described and it is found that the amount of disposition is progressive in relation to the amounts of shortening. Expand
Superior versus Anteroinferior Plating of the Clavicle Revisited: A Mechanical Study
TLDR
It is believed that anteroinferior plating is preferred as a result of the increase in bending rigidity together with other advantages, including avoidance of neurovascular compromise, the use of longer screws, and decreased hardware prominence. Expand

TLDR
The use of clavicular curvature analysis offers a new dimension in assessment of the functional morphology of the clavicle and its relationship to the shoulder complex. Expand

TLDR
Recurring deficits in shoulder strength and endurance are detected in this patient population, which may be related to the significant level of dysfunction detected by the patient-based outcome measures. Expand

TLDR
Bilateral directional asymmetry of the clavicle is examined in relation to the humerus in a large, geographically diverse human sample, comparing lengths and diaphyseal breadths and indicates that humans have same-side %DA bias in theClavicles and humeri, and contralateral length %DA between these elements.
