Abstract


We treated 28 clavicle fractures with a mean age of 45 years (15-55) years with mini Ilizarov fixation from January 1999 to January 2015 at Bari-Ilizarov Orthopaedic Centre and NITOR, Dhaka. Out of 28 patients 20 were male and 8 female. We are presenting here the use of mini Ilizarov apparatus for fracture clavicle. Among the complications 2 wire track infections were observed from which all responded positively to local care. The mini Ilizarov apparatus and technique represents a useful method for the successful healing of fracture clavicle.
