PURPOSE To compare antegrade interlocking nailing with dynamic compression plating for humeral shaft fractures in terms of functional outcomes, union and complication rates. METHODS 34 men and 22 women aged >18 years with fresh humeral shaft fractures (up to grade IIIa) with or without neurological deficits underwent either antegrade interlocking nailing (n=31) or dynamic compression plating (n=25). Functional outcome of the upper limbs (according to the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons… CONTINUE READING
