The clavicula is a pair of bones of the human body that form part of the skeletal system of the upper limbs. In an adult, the bone is approximately 12 to 17 cm long with an S-shaped bend. When viewed from the front, the chest is located at the top and protrudes directly under the skin, where it is well visible and palpable. It is a bone that is prone to frequent breakage.
