Abstract
Although many clavicular malunions result in minimal functional deficit, in some symptomatic cases a corrective osteotomy might be necessary. Recently, computer-assisted surgical planning combined with patient-specific surgical guides was introduced as a powerful technology with the potential to improve the accuracy, efficiency, and consistency of corrective osteotomies, as shown for osteotomies in other anatomical regions. We describe the use of this technique in three cases of clavicular malunion.
