ABSTRACT
The article presents a research study which investigates the stability of the use of fracture fixation constructs to proximal humeral fractures. It mentions that fixation constructs such as 3-mm box construct and 3-mm fan construct were subjected for analysis on torsional stiffness, compression and load to failure during varus bending. It hypothesizes that the stiffness of 3-mm box and 3-mm fan constructs improves in all testing modalities when an additional external fixator is placed.
