Abstract

Purpose: To summarize and analyze the obstetric factors and medical care for neonatal clavicle fracture during delivery. Materials and Methods: In 4,456 vaginal deliveries, only six newborns were found with a clavicle fracture in our hospital from October 2002 to October 2011. Results: Clinical findings showed that dystocia and improper midwifery manoeuvres are the two major reasons which lead to newborn clavicular fractures. Conclusion: More attention should be paid to non-violent traction and proper treatment of shoulder dystocia.
