Helical plate fixation for treatment of comminuted fractures of the proximal and middle one-third of the humerus.

Abstract

When an operative treatment is indicated for comminuted fractures of the proximal and middle one-third of the humerus, plate fixation is one of the better options. However, a long plate must be applied from the lateral aspect of the greater tuberosity to the shaft of the humerus, which requires dissection of the deltoid muscle insertion. We twisted the long… (More)
