Distal Third Clavicle Injuries

These injuries account for 15% of all clavicle fractures.1 Acumed offers plating options in a variety of lengths, contours, and screw diameters. When a coracoclavicular injury is present, the Acu-Sinch® suture anchor may be used in conjunction with the clavicle plates to aid in repairing the joint.
