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?

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...
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)...
The study evaluates the effectiveness of surgical or non-surgical treatment for children type 1 humeral condyle fracture.Half of the participants receive surgical treatment and the other h...
Fractures of the proximal humerus and the humeral head are most common injuries and the management is challenging. Functional therapy with short immobilization, followed by an accelerated ...
Head-split fractures are a subgroup of proximal humeral fractures in which the fracture line affects the articular surface. Limited data are available regarding outcomes and risk factors for failure f...
Augmentation of proximal humeral fracture fixation with an endosteal fibular allograft has increased in popularity because it biomechanically improves construct stability and potentially may lead to a...
Proximal humeral fractures are a commonly encountered injury; however, no consensus has been reached for the ideal treatment. Current surgical fixation options include plate, plate with fibular strut ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relevance of a commonly used morbidity prognostic tool, the Charlson comorbidity index (CCI), in determining the survival rate of patients with isolated p...
The optimal treatment of complex proximal humeral fractures in adults remains controversial. We evaluated the risk of complications and the long-term outcomes in patients with a severely displaced fra...
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.
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...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
