Plate fixation of displaced midshaft clavicular fractures leads to lower nonunion rates, better functional outcomes, improved cosmesis, and greater patient satisfaction compared with non operative treatment. Although high success rates of plate fixation of displaced clavicle fractures have been shown, reported complications of plate fixation include implant failure, infections, implant prominence, poor cosmesis, non unions and refracture as a result of removal of the plate. Vascular complications associated with clavicle fixation are rare but hazardous. We report a case of a 25 years old life guard who sustained a pseudoaneurysm of the thyrocervical trunk of the left subclavian artery after plate fixation of a midshaft fracture of the clavicle a potentially dangerous complication that was not previously reported in the literature.
