Computed tomography-based prediction of the straight antegrade humeral nail's entry point and exposure of "critical types": truth or fiction?

Abstract

BACKGROUND Straight antegrade intramedullary nailing of proximal humerus fractures has shown promising clinical results. However, up to 36% of all humeri seem to be "critical types" in terms of the potential violation of the supraspinatus (SSP) tendon footprint by the nail's insertion zone. The aims of this study were to evaluate if a computed tomography… (More)
