Humerus fractures have continued to be associated with conservative and functional therapy. Indications for osteosynthesis may result either from failure of conservative treatment or from concomitant complications. Such cases are discussed in this paper. The patients with surgical treatment should not be considered as a group of "negative" selection, but osseous consolidation was accomplished in all of them. DC plate application has proved to be the optional method.
