The fractures occurred 97 times in the middle third (54.18%); 102 times (56.98%) presented simple fragments, and 57 (31.38%) oblique lines. We treated close and open fractures, respectively, 48 and 38 cases with plaster cast immobilization; 3 and 67 with external fixation after plaster cast immobilization; 5 and 12 with osteosynthesis by means of plate and screws, and 2 and 3 with external fixation only.
