The commonest cause of wrist drop in the sample was RNI at the mid arm level produced by fracture of the humerus. The injuries due to trauma were more frequent in males, on the right side, and in the military population, while iatrogenic injuries were more common in females, on the left side, and in the civilian population.
This has not been explored, particularly on a large scale with multiple observers; therefore, this study also captures details about the morphology used for pair-matching the humerus.

Radiographs of each humerus were taken before fixation and testing to ensure they were free of defects and ostensibly appeared to be of appropriate bone density.
One hundred and sixty-one consecutive patients who had sustained proximal humerus fractures were prospectively tracked in a database following operative fracture fixation with a locking plate.
Twenty four displaced supracondylar fractures of the humerus were treated by open reduction and internal fixation with K-wires between Dec 2013 to Feb 2015.
Elbow varus sequelae due to distal humerus fractures and its treatment is mainly related to aesthetic problems and functional issues [12,13].
The MR images also revealed multiple quasi-circular lesions within the proximal humerus that were suggestive of metastases or multiple myeloma (Figure 2).
The scapular bone was fixed, and the humerus was externally rotated 10 times with the force of 0.5 N*m.
Supracondylar fractures of the humerus account for 3% of all pediatric fractures, making them the most common elbow fractures in children (1-3).
constructed a FE model of humeral fracture with angle of 30[degrees], 45[degrees], and 90[degrees] between the fracture face and axis of humerus to record the stress and strain distribution of humerus.
