A total of 131 fractures of the clavicle were operated on in 129 patients. There was no bony infection or infected pseudarthrosis. Four clavicles refractured after removal of the plate and five operations led to pseudarthroses which were successfully treated by reoperation. Radiological and clinical results in the majority of the re-examined patients were excellent. Indications, operative technique and causes of poor results are described. © 1992 Butterworth-Heinemann Ltd.
