Fracture clavicle (collar bone) fixed without metal implants

  • This is a new technique where we have been able to fix a badly displaced fracture of the outer end of the collar bone by a new method. In this method, in place of using metal plates, we used only synthetic tapes. The advantage is that (a) there is no metal in the body, and hence no hassles related to implant irritation, beeping at metal detectors etc.
