Clavicle fractures account for 3% of closed fractures of the tubular bones and are typical for persons of young working age. Fractures of the middle third account for 75%, lateral 20%, and medial 5% of all clavicle fractures. Most often, the treatment of these injuries requires open reduction and internal fixation with internal fixation, or much less often an external fixation device is used [1-3].
