Abstract

Recent innovations have greatly increased the range of proximal humeral fractures that are amenable to open reduction and plate fixation. The optimum technique for some of the more complex fracture patterns is not yet fully refined. This article aims to describe the recent advances in the treatment of complex proximal humeral fractures by open reduction and locking plate fixation, focusing particularly on the indications for surgery, the operative techniques, and the expected outcomes after treatment.
