Clavicle Fractures in Children

Clavicle Fractures in Children
About 85% of clavicle fractures in children occur in the midshaft (Figures 2A, 2B, and 3). The majority of fractures occur from falls in younger aged individuals or from sports related in older children. When the fracture occurs in the diaphysis, it usually heals with minimal deformity. There will be excellent healing in 6 weeks, with return to non-contact sports. In three months, the patient will be able to return to contact sports.
