LPHP-Philos-PHN Conservative Treatment
The aim of the study is to compare the results regarding fracture healing
and functional outcome after the treatment of proximal humeral fractures
with the four different treatment methods after 12w./6months and 12 months
based on radiological evaluation as well as the "constant score" and the
Evaluation of proximal humeral fractures using a new stable-angled implant.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A cartilage-capped benign tumor that often appears as a stalk on the surface of bone. It is probably a developmental malformation rather than a true neoplasm and is usually found in the metaphysis of the distal femur, proximal tibia, or proximal humerus. Osteochondroma is the most common of benign bone tumors.
Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.
Kidney Tubules, Proximal
The renal tubule portion that extends from the BOWMAN CAPSULE in the KIDNEY CORTEX into the KIDNEY MEDULLA. The proximal tubule consists of a convoluted proximal segment in the cortex, and a distal straight segment descending into the medulla where it forms the U-shaped LOOP OF HENLE.
Displacement of the HUMERUS from the SCAPULA.
The purpose of this study is to compare the abductor muscle strength measured with a dynamometer in patients with reverse oblique inter- or subtrochanteric fractures treated either with a...
The fracture of the proximal humerus represents 4% of the fractures encountered in clinics and it must be treated surgically. Thus, the aim of the surgical treatment is to maintain bone al...
The purpose of the study is to compare two common ways of rehabilitating after proximal humerus fractures treated non-operatively.
In many cases, the existing locking bolts and screws in intramedullary nails do not provide sufficient stability. Due to the play between screw and nail, the reduction can be lost and the...
The surgical treatment of wrist fractures (distal radius bone) has been changed by the introduction of a new plate design, the locking plate. This results in improved fixation and stabili...
Locking plates are increasingly used to surgically treat proximal humerus fractures. Knowledge of the bone quality of the proximal humerus is important. Studies have shown the medial and dorsal aspect...
Background and purpose There is considerable uncertainty about the optimal treatment of displaced 4-part fractures of the proximal humerus. Within the last decade, locking plate technology has been co...
OBJECTIVES: Placement of a proximal humerus locking plate through a percutaneous transdeltoid approach bears the advantages of a minimally invasive approach but may compromise the anterior branches of...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: The treatment of displaced proximal humerus fractures, especially in elderly, remains controversial. The objective of this study was to evaluate functional outcome of locking pla...
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical benefit of medial support screws for locking plating of proximal humerus fractures. METHODS: Seventy-two consecutive patients underwent...
