To investigate the assumption that reversed shoulder prosthetic replacement will give a better functional outcome compared to open reduction and internal fixation with an angular stable pl...
Reverse shoulder prosthesis has recently emerged as an acute treatment for complex proximal humeral fractures. Promising functional results have been reported in observational papers. How...
Prospective non-randomized, open, unicentric clinical trial to compare two different treatments for Three-four parts fractures of proximal humerus (Neer's Classification) in elderly patien...
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)...
Proximal humeral fractures are common injuries with the highest incidence being amongst the elderly. Most proximal humeral fractures are nondisplaced or minimally displaced. The majority o...
Proximal and shaft humeral fractures are very common worldwide; surgical treatment can be a viable option to reduce limb immobilization and to allow the patient an earlier return to daily activities. ...
Axillary artery and brachial plexus injuries have been reported to be associated with proximal humeral fractures. In this report, we present two cases of axillary artery and brachial plexus injury sec...
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty is now the standard treatment for displaced, three- or four-part, proximal humeral fractures in patients older than 70 years. Inadequate tuberosity repair or inappropriat...
There is still no gold standard for the treatment of humeral shaft fractures. This might be attributed to the fact that several commonly used treatment methods have shown good clinical results. A bimo...
Metal plates are the fixation devices used most frequently to proximal humeral fractures (PHFs). However, in recent years carbon fiber-reinforced polyetheretherketone (CFR-PEEK) plates have become inc...
Fractures of the HUMERUS.
Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.
Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
