The complication rate of locked plating for proximal humerus fractures remains stubbornly high. The purpose of this study was to determine if a learning curve exists with the operative treatment of proximal humerus fractures.

This systematic review of overlapping meta-analyses was conducted to propose a principle to make decisions for comparing clinical safety and efficacy of surgical and non-surgical treatment for displac...
To date, there is a lack of consensus regarding surgical treatment recommendations for complex proximal humerus fracture (PHF) patterns, especially between joint preservation and joint replacement tec...
Although increasingly used, the benefit of surgical treatment of displaced 2-part proximal humerus fractures has not been proven. This trial evaluates the clinical effectiveness of surgery with lockin...
Giant cell tumor (GCT) is benign aggressive tumors with a high rate of recurrence and capacity to metastasize. Wide resection is the treatment of choice, but this creates a flaw at the proximal end of...
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...
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 metho...
This study is a multicenter, prospective, non-randomized, non-controlled post-market clinical follow-up study. The primary objective of this study is to confirm the safety and performance ...
Xin1 Humerus system is an X-ray-based tracking and navigation system designed to calculate the plate position and all required proximal screw lengths for proximal humerus plate fixation. T...
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.
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)...
The course of learning of an individual or a group. It is a measure of performance plotted over time.
Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.
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.
Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)
Surgical procedure in which the STOMACH is transected high on the body. The resulting small proximal gastric pouch is joined to any parts of the SMALL INTESTINE by an end-to-side SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS, depending on the amounts of intestinal surface being bypasses. This procedure is used frequently in the treatment of MORBID OBESITY by limiting the size of functional STOMACH, food intake, and food absorption.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
