There are only a few studies available about polyaxial implants in the treatment of 3- and 4-part proximal humerus fractures. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate clinical results and complications of open reduction and internal fixation of displaced 3- and 4-part fractures… CONTINUE READING
