    Background: The distal part of the humerus is the second most common fracture location in children. Complications are more common than with other pediatric fractures and are mostly related to inappropriate diagnosis and treatment. Methods: On the basis of data from 1990 through 2010 in the...

    Abstract Background  Different operative techniques used for treating displaced proximal humeral fractures could result in malunion, non-union, osteonecrosis of humeral head, loosening of screw and loss of reduction particularly in comminuted and osteoporotic fractures. Locking compression...

    Background: With technologic advances such as locked periarticular plating, hemiarthroplasty of the humeral head, and more recently reverse total shoulder replacement, surgical treatment of proximal humerus fractures has become more commonplace. However, there is insufficient information...

    Background: The best surgical treatment for a patient with rheumatoid arthritis and an acute distal humeral fracture is not well established. Because of the distorted anatomy of the arthritic elbow joint and the adjacent osteoporotic bone, total elbow arthroplasty may be favored over open...

    Background: The treatment of proximal humeral fractures in the elderly remains controversial. Options include non-operative treatment, open reduction with internal fixation (ORIF), and hemiarthroplasty.
