BACKGROUND: Conservative treatments of displaced clavicular fractures was investigated, to evaluate the effect on functional results of the change in clavicle length.
METHODS: Conservative treatment of simple shoulder sling was applied to 27 patients and a figure-of-eight bandage was applied to 33 patients.
RESULTS: After union the mean shortness in the shoulder sling group was 11.68±3.64% and in the figure-of-eight bandage group, 10.63±3.78%. The rate of 10.6% shortness after union compared with the healthy clavicle had a negative effect on functional results.
CONCLUSIONS: The effect on the functional results is not actually caused by the parameter of the conservative treatment, whether a figure-of-eight bandage or a shoulder sling, but by the shortness in the clavicle length.
