INTRODUCTION Angular stable osteosynthesis has become the gold standard in the operative treatment of proximal humeral fractures. The aim of this article is to determine the indications for osteosynthesis versus primary arthroplasty based on clinical and radiological parameters. METHODS A total of 368 surgically treated proximal humeral fractures were reviewed. Preoperative X-rays were used to evaluate the displacement and vascularity of the humeral head (according to the Hertel criteria) and… CONTINUE READING
