Summary of "Does a Learning Curve Exist for the Surgical Treatment of Proximal Humerus Fractures?"

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
