The aim of the study was to evaluate the functional outcome in patients treated with proximal humeral fracture who were treated with minimally internal fixations like K-wires, osteosutures etc.
Those fractures treated by closed reduction and percutaneous pin fixation, osteosutures and cancellous screw fixation.
The fragments were fixed either with osteosutures using non-absorbable materials preferably ethibond, 'K' wires or cancellous screws carefully avoiding anterior humeral circumflex artery.
In regard to proximal humerus fractures, this concept can be applied by means of closed reduction and percutaneous pinning or a minimal open reduction and internal fixation using Osteosutures or cancellous screws.
Of the remaining 4 patients, open reduction with minimal soft tissue handling was done and the fractures were fixed by Osteosutures and cancellous screws in 2 patients each.
