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...
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 f...
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 ...
40 postmenopausal women, with a non-operated proximal humeral fracture, will be randomized to standard treatment (physiotherapy) or standard treatment + Forsteo (rhPTH 1-34) during 4 weeks...
Proximal humerus fractures are particularly frequent injuries and represent 6% of all fractures with an overall incidence of 63/100.000 in human. The goal is to assess our institutional ev...
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...
Hemiarthroplasty (HA) for proximal humerus fracture (PHF) is associated with tuberosity complications like migration, non-union, and resorption. In order to improve the rate of consolidation of the gr...
The aim of this study is to retrospectively compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients treated with non-lateralizing reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) and with humeral lateralizing RSA a...
The PROFHER study is a multicenter randomized controlled trial of 250 out of 1250 patients assessed for eligibility with dislocated proximal humeral fractures with involvement of the surgical neck. T...
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. ...
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
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)
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
