About this book

Proximal Humerus Fractures includes everything the orthopedic surgeon needs to know about the clinical management of these common shoulder injuries. Although non-operative treatment techniques are addressed and can be used in less severe circumstances, this book focuses mainly on the current operative treatment techniques for proximal humerus and tuberosity fractures, malunions and nonunions, including open reduction, percutaneous pinning, locking plate and intramedullary nail fixation, and humeral head hemiarthroplasty and reverse shoulder arthroplasty. A chapter on complications associated with these types of fractures and their management is also included. Dedicated to a common musculoskeletal injury, especially in athletes and the elderly suffering from osteoporosis, Proximal Humerus Fractures will be a valuable resource to all orthopedic surgeons and practitioners of sports medicine.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This 164-page book deals with a narrow subject -- proximal humeral fractures --but treats it with a good amount of depth in terms of diagnosis, classification, and treatment. … This is a unique and helpful book for general orthopedic surgeons.” (Benjamin A. Goldberg, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2015)
