Proximal humeral fractures: current concepts in classification, treatment and outcomes.
Neck-shaft angle (NSA) was measured as an indication of displacement of the humeral head [Figure 1].[18] The change of the NSA from immediate postoperative radiographs to final follow-up was calculated.{Figure 1}
The clavicle was normal and the right humeral shaft fracture was detected in the direct graphies of the right arm in the ED (Figure 2, 3).

According to the company, the Catalyst CSR is a single-tray total shoulder arthroplasty system containing a non-spherical humeral implant for consistent anatomic joint line restoration and specialised glenoid instrumentation for a less invasive approach that preserves the natural anatomy and removes less of the patient's bone.
In this retrospective study, we report the clinical experience achieved in a consecutive series of 39 patients treated with MIPO technique for proximal humeral fracture.
Radiological examinations revealed that he had suffered right traumatic pneumothorax, right humeral shaft fracture, right olecranon fracture, right scapular fracture, and right radial nerve palsy (Figures 1(a) and 1(b)).
Traditional internal fixation stabilisation methods for proximal humeral fractures include percutaneous K-wiring, screw fixation, tension band wiring and conventional plates and screws and intramedullary nailing.
This was a retrospective study of pediatric patients with a supracondylar humeral fracture who were seen at University Pediatric Hospital of Puerto Rico (HOPU, by its Spanish acronym) from January 2008 to January 2011 and treated either with closed reduction with percutaneous skeletal fixation or open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF).The inclusion criteria were as follows: being from 1 to 15 years of age, having suffered an isolated humeral supracondylar fracture (treated at HOPU), and having had a minimum of 1 year of follow-up after management.
The examiner manually corrects the dyskinesis and stabilises the scapula on the bony thorax by rotating the scapula upward and outwards, while simultaneously pushing the scapula to increase the posterior tilt during humeral elevation.
Treatments of proximal humeral fractures remain challenging and should take everything into account.
