OBJECTIVE Our aim was to evaluate the results of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) using locking plates in diaphyseal humerus and proximal humerus fractures. METHODS Nine patients who underwent open reduction and MIPO for the treatment of diaphyseal and proximal humerus fractures between June 2006 and October 2009 were included in this study. One S3(®) and 8 PHILOS(®) plates were used. Mean age was 75.2 (range: 32 to 86) years and all patients were females. Mean follow-up was 33… CONTINUE READING
