A retrospective and non-probabilistic cross-sectional study was conducted in surgically treated clavicular fracture patients. Shortening was measured in millimeters on postoperative X-Ray, dash scale was subsequently applied to determine the degree of function.
12 patients, average age 37 ± 17.7 years. 2 women and 10 men. 5 on the right side and 7 left side. Statistical analysis was performed with Pearson correlation coefficient. Average shortening 13.32 ± 9.9 mm. Average scale of DASH 6.0 ± 3.
Moderate correlation with limitation in function in shortenings 1 cm, as well as clinical significance on the DASH scale from 6 points, 4 less than what the literature marks. With this, it can be determined that patients managed with or without surgery, with a shortening 1 cm will have a considerable limitation in the function of the shoulder and upper limb.
