Event Description
This report is being filed after the subsequent review of the following article: erdle, b; et al (2017) comparative analysis of locking plate versus hook plate osteosynthesis of neer type iib lateral clavicle fractures. Arch orthop trauma surg, 137:651-662. This retrospective, observational cohort study to analyze and compare clinical and radiological results and complications of locking plate osteosynthesis (lpo) versus hook plate osteosynthesis (hpo) with acromioclavicular joint (acj) stabilization. For lpo, either a 3. 5 mm lcp t-plate (depuy synthes) designed for distal radius fractures or lcp superior lateral clavicle plate (depuy synthes) was used. For hpo, a 3. 5 mm lcp clavicular hook plate (depuy synthes, west chester, usa) was used. There were 32 patients (19 hpo, 13 lpo) with a mean age of 44. 1±14. 2 years at surgery. The mean follow-up period was 54. 2 months (range 25. 2¿111. 4 months). Hpo complications included 1 non-union with no revision, 2 delayed unions, 1 peri-implant fracture with revision, 5 persistent acromial osteolysis and 8 posttraumatic acj arthrosis. Lpo complications included 3 delayed unions, 1 post traumatic acj arthrosis. Heterotopic ossifications in the coracoclavicular region were present in 12 patients (37. 5%) (n
9 hp, n
3 lp; p
0. 21) and did not influence functional outcome measures. This is 1 of 1 for (b)(4). This report is for an unknown lcp plate and refers to the serious injury of 1 unknown patient who experienced non-union, 5 delayed unions, 1 peri-implant fracture with revision, 5 persistent acromial osteolysis, 9 posttraumatic acj arthrosis and 12 heterotopic ossifications.
