Osteosynthesis for nonunion of a mid-shaft clavicle
fracture is associated with a >2-fold increase in the risk of postoperative complication within a month, compared to acute clavicle
Radiographs taken nine years later (at age 66) revealed that there was still moderate elevation of the left clavicle
and widening of the AC and CC joints (Figure 2).
The study particularly considered birth trauma injuries representing a concern for orthopaedic surgeons, such as fractures and peripheral nerve lesions, especially those affecting the upper limb: fractures to the clavicle
and humerus, brachial plexus injury, forearm and elbow fractures and dislocations.
With addition of more sub types, the NEER classification of distal clavicle
fracture was later compiled to include up to five types.
This actually may pinch the subclavian vein between the clavicle
and the first rib, making it more difficult to cannulate.

Typical radiographic imaging appearances are of multifocal synchronous or metachronous lytic or sclerotic or rarely mixed lytic-sclerotic lesions in metaphyses of long bones and the medial end of clavicle
fractures: a comparison of five classification systems and their relationship to treatment outcomes.
Surgery was performed on the third day after the injury via a horizontal incision just above the distal clavicle
