Operative Time and Cost Vary by Surgeon: An Analysis of Supracondylar Humerus Fractures in Children.

Operative time is a critical driver of cost in orthopedics and an important target for improving value in health care. This study used an archetypal pediatric orthopedic procedure to identify surgeon-...

Reduction techniques for minimally invasive stabilization of proximal humeral fractures.

The aim of surgical stabilization of proximal humerus fractures is to restore the anatomical relations between the greater and lesser tubercle, to reconstruct the joint and preserve the vascular suppl...

The increasing role of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty in the treatment of proximal humerus fractures.

Hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder is a well established treatment for proximal humerus fractures not amenable to open reduction internal fixation. However, orthopedic surgeons have recently increased u...

Rate of avascular necrosis after fracture dislocations of the proximal humerus: Timing of surgery.

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the humeral head is a severe complication after proximal humerus fracture dislocations, and leads to a poorer clinical outcome and subsequent revision surgeries. The aim ...

Uncemented Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty as Initial Treatment for Comminuted Proximal Humerus Fractures.

To determine if uncemented implants would provide similar outcomes while avoiding the complications associated with cement in the treatment of elderly patients with proximal humerus fractures (PHFs) w...

Clinical Trials [6315 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

RSA vs. Nonop for 3 & 4-Part Proximal Humerus Fractures

This study is designed to answer if patients fair better with non-operative management or reverse total arthroplasty for treatment of 3- and 4-part proximal humerus fractures.

Evidence Based Algorithm for Proximal Humerus Fractures

Proximal humerus fractures are particularly frequent injuries and represent 6% of all fractures with an overall incidence of 63/100.000 in human. The goal is to assess our institutional ev...

The Nordic DeltaCon Trial for Displaced Proximal Humeral Fractures in Elderly

The Nordic DeltaCon Trial is a prospective, semi-blinded, randomized, controlled, multi-center and multi-national trial comparing reverse prosthesis and non-operative treatment in displace...

Outcome of Proximal Humerus Fractures :Anatomic Neck Fractures vs Surgical Neck Fractures

From April ,2014 to April 2015,31 patients with fractures of the proximal humerus were treated in our hospital. According to anatomic neck fractures (ANF) and surgical neck fractures (SNF)...

Comparison of Early and Late Therapy for Adults With Non-Operatively Treated Proximal Humerus Fractures

The purpose of the study is to compare two common ways of rehabilitating after proximal humerus fractures treated non-operatively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.

Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.

Fractures of the HUMERUS.

The duration of a surgical procedure in hours and minutes.

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.
