Displaced Proximal Humeral Fractures: Delta Prothesis or Philos Plate?

2015-05-04 16:38:22 | BioPortfolio


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 plate in displaced proximal humeral fractures.


RTSA equals Delta Xtend reversed total shoulder prosthesis. Angular stable plate means Proximal humerus plate (Philos)

Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Versus Hemiarthroplasty for Displaced 3- and 4-part Proximal Humeral Fractures

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...

Reverse or Nothing for Complex Proximal Humeral Fractures

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...

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...

Comparison Between Anterior Approach (Deltopectoral) and Lateral Approach (Deltoid Splitting) in Shoulder Reverse Arthroplasty for Proximal Humerus Fracture

The aim of the study consists in comparing two surgical approaches (deltopectoral versus lateral deltoid splitting) in the treatment of proximal humerus fractures treated with a reversed t...

Salvage reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for failed operative treatment of proximal humeral fractures in patients younger than 60 years: long-term results.

Is salvage reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) a justifiable treatment for failed operative treatment (open reduction-internal fixation [ORIF] or primary and secondary hemiarthroplasty) of prox...

Post-operative periprosthetic humeral fractures after reverse shoulder arthroplasty: a review of the literature.

Post-operative periprosthetic shoulder fractures incidence is gradually raising due to aging of population and increasing of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA). Management of this complication...

Should the supraspinatus tendon be excised in the case of reverse shoulder arthroplasty for fracture?

In the case of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) for proximal humeral fractures (PHFs) with tuberosity reconstruction, it is unclear whether the supraspinatus tendon continues to play a role. The ai...

Management of Three- and Four-Part Proximal Humerus Fractures.

The management of three- and four-part proximal humerus fractures remains controversial because the literature has supported all forms of management, including nonsurgical management, open reduction a...

Acromial stress fracture following reverse total shoulder arthroplasty: incidence and predictors.

Increased use of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) has led to an understanding of unique complications such as acromial stress fractures (ASFs). The factors associated with ASFs are not fully...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

Fractures of the HUMERUS.

Replacement of the SHOULDER JOINT.

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)

Partial or total replacement of a joint.
