BACKGROUND Although most proximal humeral fractures are attributed to osteoporosis, they are usually not considered individually in osteoporotic studies because of their lower incidence. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of nondisplaced proximal humeral fractures in comparison with other outpatient-treated osteoporotic fractures, as well as to assess their functional impact and effects on patient-perceived quality of life.
