The purpose of the project is to compare the management of 3 and 4 part proximal humerus fractures (PHF) with an angular stable plate (Philos) with that of an intramedullary nail (Multiloc) in light of complications, radiological, economical, functional and clinical outcome.
Randomized controlled trial (RCT) from Akershus University Hospital in Norway. Randomization between two implants. The investigators will use deltopectoral or deltoid split as surgical access. All patients will have calcar screws and cuff sutures. When lack of bone for example after decompressing valgus compressed fractures, a bone-substitute might be used in the surgeons preference. Follow up in outpatient clinic at 6, 12, 52 and 104 weeks, but also a 5 year follow up is planned. Postoperative radiographs of both shoulders and CT of operated shoulder will be taken.

Proximal humerus fractures are more common in older people. They can be caused by a minor trauma on an osteoporotic bone. Non- or little-displaced proximal humerus fractures are treated o...
To explore clinical effectiveness of PHILOS plate fixation and hemi-shoulder arthroplasty in treating three or four-part fractures of proximal humerus
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...
Fractures of the distal radius are one of the most common orthopaedic injuries and are associated with a high complication rate. There is a lack of clinical trials comparing the different ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the abductor muscle strength measured with a dynamometer in patients with reverse oblique inter- or subtrochanteric fractures treated either with a ...
Lateral malleolus fracture can occur alone or is associated with the fracture of the medial malleolus leading to ankle instability. Treatment is aimed to achieve anatomical reduction and ensure stabil...
Onychotillomania is a nail-picking disorder characterized by nail dystrophy and abnormal morphology of the nail plate, nail bed, and periungual skin.
In the elderly, low energy distal femur fractures (native or periprosthetic) can be devastating injuries, carrying high rates of morbidity and mortality, comparable to the hip fracture population. Poo...
Retronychia is a recently described disorder caused by ingrowth of the proximal nail plate into the proximal nail fold. It is suspected when there is persistent paronychia, particularly in the setting...
We aimed to compare the clinical efficacy of three different internal fixation methods, i.e. proximal femoral locking compress plate (PF-LCP), proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) and dynamic hip...
Separation of nail plate from the underlying nail bed. It can be a sign of skin disease, infection (such as ONYCHOMYCOSIS) or tissue injury.
Diseases of the nail plate and tissues surrounding it. The concept is limited to primates.
Fractures involving a GROWTH PLATE.
Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.
Excessive lateral nail growth into the nail fold. Because the lateral margin of the nail acts as a foreign body, inflammation and granulation may result. It is caused by improperly fitting shoes and by improper trimming of the nail.
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...
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
