BACKGROUND Fractures of the proximal humerus are common in elderly patients, especially in osteoporotic bone. Requirements for surgical treatment are high primary stability to allow early functional physiotherapy. The Non-Contact Bridging (NCB) Plate for the proximal humerus (PH) is a new head locking system for treating fractures of the proximal humerus which allows minimally invasive surgery (MIS). METHODS In this contribution, the implant and technique are described, as well as the… CONTINUE READING
