: Displaced lateral end fracture of clavicle and acromioclavicular dislocation type III~VI may be required surgical treatment. Material and Methods : From May 1998 to March 2001, we operated with Wolter plate with minimal incision by one surgeon. Immediately, pendulum and passive exercise was initiated after surgery. The shoulder function was evaluated using UCLA score. Average follow up was on 28(12~45) months. Results : All 11 patients were regained satisfactory function. Average UCLA score was 31.9(29~35) at last follow up. Conclusion : The merit of Wolter plate fixation with minimal incision is simple technique, reduced surgical time, smaller scar than large plate, strong fixation, early exercise, reduced implant failure. The disadvantage is expensive, skin irritatatation by long hook. But Wolter plate fixation with minimal incision is a good method of internal fixation and excellent clinical result in surgical treatment of type II displaced lateral end fracture of the clavicle and type III~VI acromioclavicular dislocation.
Key Words: Displaced lateral end fracture of clavicle, Acromioclavicular dislocation, Wolter plate
