Trial Contact: Harriott, Paula
Trial Phone: 321.841.3867
IRB No: 17.111.09
Protocol Abbrev: Screw to nerve
Principal Investigator: Joshua Robert Langford, MD
Sub Investigators: Koval, Kenneth MD; Munro, Mark MD
Age Group: Adult
Applicable Disease Sites: Clavicle Fractures
Therapies Involved: None, obeservation study.
The purpose of this study was to identify patients who underwent open treatment of clavicle fractures who also received CT scans of the chest postoperatively in order to examine the distance between the screws and the neurovascular structures to determine the risk posed by these screws in a clinical setting.
