Definitive indications for acute surgical intervention include skin tenting, open fractures, the presence of neurovascular compromise, multiple trauma, or floating shoulder are the indications for intervention of surgery. 30 patients with mid shaft clavicle fractures were included in the study in the department of orthopaedics and these cases are divided into following two groups of 15 patients each. Operational Treatment leads to improve short term functional outcome, increased satisfaction of patients, and early recovery from clavicular fracture. MIPPO technique with the application of LCP offered an ideal combination in terms of bone fixation and soft-tissue sparing.
