A Study on Outcome of Surgical Management of Proximal Humerus Fractures

Author : V Ramesh, T Lalvani Shyam

Fractures of the proximal humerus represent approximately 4% of all fractures and 26% of humerus fractures. The study is to Study the occurrence, mechanism of injury and displacement of various types of fracture according to Neer’s. Results were evaluated by the use of Neer’s shoulder score based on pain, function, range of motion and anatomy for each case assessed and recorded. Proximal humeral fractures account for almost 4 to 5% of all fractures. These fractures have a dual age distribution occurring either in young people following high energy trauma or in those older than 50 years with low velocity injuries like simple fall. The incidence of proximal humeral fractures has increased in last few years due to changes in life style and increase in road traffic accidents. The best management in these injuries is still inconclusive. Studies have shown non-operative and operative treatments, both give favorable results, and the confusion remains.
