Abstract

Distal clavicle fractures in adolescent patients may benefit from surgical intervention depending on fracture pattern, age of the patient, and other variables. Less-invasive techniques allowing earlier mobilization, decreased pain, and no requirement for hardware removal are attractive. A technique of double-button suture fixation is useful for the treatment of distal clavicle fractures in the skeletally immature.
