Displaced middle-third clavicle fracture management in sport: still a challenge in 2018: Should you call the surgeon to speed return to play?

Abstract / Description of output

The management of clavicle fractures should be guided by fracture location (middle-third/lateral/medial) and fracture configuration (undisplaced/displaced/comminuted). Current management guidelines recommend surgical management for middle-third fractures, which are completely displaced, shortened by 2 cm or comminuted, as this can facilitate an earlier return to sport and improve final shoulder function.
