Treatment of Two-Part Proximal Humerus Fractures: Intramedullary Nail Compared to Locked Plating
HSS Journal (Musculoskeletal Journal of Hospital for Special Surgery), 05/17/2012
Lekic N et al. – The results suggest that either LP fixation or intramedullary nailing (IMN) fixation for a two–part proximal humerus fracture provides acceptable fixation and results in a similar range of shoulder motion. Although complication rates were low and insignificant between the two groups, a trend toward increased complications in the IMN group is noted.
