1. Do a standardized surgical treatment of unstable displaced proximal humerus fracture in patients aged over 60 compared to a standardized conservative treatment gain a better functional outcome after one year?

2. Do surgical treatment gain more QALY than conservative treatment after one year?

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.

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.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

Restoration of normal alignment of a fractured bone via an OPERATIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURE.

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
