Abstract:

The clavicle bone is the only long bone in the body that lies horizontally. The method used by surgeons for treatment of clavicle bone fractures is intramedullary nailing, hook plate, Kirschner wire and plate fixation method. In intramedullary nailing a specially designed metal rod is inserted into the marrow canal of the clavicle. The rod passes across the fracture to keep it in position. It is screwed to the bone at both ends. This keeps the nail and the bone in proper position during healing. In plate fixation method a plate is used as fixing medium as the fractured bone is screwed to the plate firmly which holds the bone in desired position for healing. The metal rod and plate come in various lengths and diameters to fit most clavicle bones. Therefore need for doing to find more feasible method for treatment of clavicle bone with providing maximum strength possible to the bone in fractured state.
