Trends and variation in incidence, surgical treatment, and repeat surgery of proximal humeral
fractures in the elderly.
Postoperative complications included screw penetration, humeral
head avascular necrosis, subacromial impingement, and implant failures and other general complications such as nonunion or wound infection.
While clavicle fracture is the primary long-bone fracture which occurs during delivery, femoral and humeral
fractures are mostly observed secondarily with an incidence of 1 to 2/10.000 deliveries.
Key: Ac: Acromion; CSA: Critical shoulder angle; GA: Distance from glenoid plane to the lateral-most point of the acromion GH--Distance from the glenoid plane to the lateral-most aspect of the humeral
head Hh--Humeral head; Hs--Humeral shaft; M --Medial; S--Superior.
Strong nonabsorbable sutures are placed in the rotator cuff at the bone-tendon junction for facilitating humeral
head and tuberosities reduction.
We diagnosed subluxation of the radial head caused by malunion of the lateral humeral
epicondyle and incomplete palsy of the radial nerve.
There is no consensus on optimal treatment of displaced proximal humeral
fractures which account for about 20% of fractures.
A Gartland type I supracondylar fracture is nondisplaced or minimally displaced (by <2 mm) and is associated with an intact anterior humeral
 Although ultrasound can accurately measure the AHD, the literature is not clear as to whether it can predict SIS in overhead athletes by measuring the AHD at different humeral
The FE model of proximal humeral
locking plate was constructed by Lin et al., aimed at testing when the proximal humeral
locking plate would fail under the condition of 0-120[degrees] arm abduction.
In practice, it has been shown that 16% of humeral
shaft and 10% of distal humerus fractures in adults are distal humeral
shaft and extra-articular supracondylar humerus fractures (1).
Ademas, contamos con ecografia doppler el cual permite medir de manera directa y fiable el flujo fistular en la arteria humeral
ipsilateral a la FAV.
