Background: Although clavicle fracture is the most common fracture in children, the best method of
its treatment is still a challenge.
Objective: The purpose of this study is comparing the clinical outcomes in Velpeau bandage and
figure of eight in treatment of pediatric mid-clavicle fracture.
Method: This randomized clinical trial was conducted on 74 children presented to our emergency
department with mid clavicle fracture. Patients were randomly divided into two groups (the Velpeau
bandage and the figure of eight). Patients were followed by telephone two weeks after presentation,
regarding general satisfaction and comfort and severity of pain. Second follow up was performed six
weeks after the initial presentation through an outpatient visit for evaluation of shoulder range of
movement, any limitations of daily activity, bone shortening and probable complications.
Results: There was no significant difference between two groups in term of limitation of shoulder
range of movement (P = 0.69) after 6 weeks and pain (P = 0.46), general satisfaction of treatment
process (P = 0.13), and satisfaction with the comfort of the bandage (P = 0.28) after 2 weeks. The
mean of bone shortening was 5.15 ± 3.18 and 7.67 ± 3.14 in figure if figure of eight and Velpeau
bandage respectively.
Conclusion: There are no clinical differences between Velpeau bandage and figure of eight in
treatment of mid clavicle fracture in children.
