The article presents a research on the application of the reverse total shoulder arthroplasty and shoulder hemiarthroplasty in the treatment of proximal humeral fractures. It states guidelines for the surgical procedures, such as an inquiry on the comorbidities and shoulder function of the patient, the provision of radiographs of the elbow and humerus, and the determination of the humeral head blood supply. It also discusses the indications and surgical techniques involved in the procedures.

    Background Operative treatment of supracondylar fractures with reduction and percutaneous pinning is so effective and safe. The great majority of displaced fractures should be treated operatively. There is little controversy that all closed Gartland type II and III fractures should have an...

    We describe a posterior approach to the elbow joint based on anatomical studies of the blood supply to the triceps muscle, and observation of the musculotendinous insertion of triceps. These studies demonstrated that the triceps muscle is essentially supplied by end arteries. Any distal-proximal...

    Background: Osteoporotic fractures of the proximal humerus show an increasing incidence. Osteoporosis not only influences the fracture risk after low-energy trauma, but also affects the mechanical stability of internal fixation. Preoperative assessment of the local bone quality may be useful in...
