During the period 1984-1989, 20 cases out of 300 cases of fracture clavicle were treated by open-reduction and internal fixation; 16 by intra medullary ‘K’ wire fixation and 4 by plating. The minimum age was 20 years and maximum 45 years. The average follow up was 3 years. All fractures united, except one cases of plating, who required bone grafting. It was observed that in selected cases open reduction and internal fixation yielded excellent functional and cosmetic results.
