Proximal humerus fractures are difficult to define because of their extreme variability and potential for complexity. We designed a study to evaluate further why this is true. Radiographs of 113 proximal humeral fractures were assessed by 3 knowledgeable observers. The observers were asked to answer independently 9 questions about the fracture, to classify the fracture according to the Neer classification, and to recommend treatment. Two months later, a learning session was held to discuss… CONTINUE READING
