BACKGROUND: Sufficient tuberosity fixation in proximal humeral fractures treated with shoulder arthroplasty is essential to gain a good clinical outcome. This biomechanical study evaluated the strength of the reattached tuberosities in reverse total shoulder arthroplasty fixed with cables or with sutures in a cerclage-like technique. Considering the mechanical advantages of flexible titanium alloy cables compared with conventional sutures for cerclage-like fixations, we hypothesized that titanium alloy cables would achieve higher fixation strengths of the tuberosities compared with heavy nonabsorbable sutures...

BACKGROUND: No consensus exists on the best method of articular reconstruction in patients who require proximal humerus resection for the management of primary bone sarcomas, soft-tissue sarcomas extending into the bone, benign and locally aggressive primary bone tumors, and metastatic disease. METHODS: We identified patients from two institutions who underwent wide resection of the proximal humerus along with oncologic reconstruction using osteoarticular allografts (OAs), endoprostheses, or allograft-prosthesis composites...

A 5-year-old female spayed Shetland sheepdog presented for evaluation of bandage sores on the left pelvic limb after a splint was placed to stabilise a digit fracture incurred approximately 2 weeks previously. Multiple areas of necrosis were identified upon bandage removal. After debridement of devitalised tissue, a 4 cm wound on the plantar surface of the metatarsal bones (with exposed bone and tendons) remained. The Papineau technique (which involves removal of infected or necrotic tissue, placement of autogenous cancellous bone graft within a wound, and delayed skin closure) was used to treat this wound...

The high rate of fixation failure in osteoporotic proximal humerus fractures indicate the need for improved solutions. Computer simulations may help to overcome the limitations of the gold standard biomechanical testing in evaluating the performance of new implants and enhance the effectivity and outcome of the design process. This study presents a framework for automated computational analysis that facilitates efficient and systematic evaluation of proximal humerus fracture plating under a variety of conditions including bone quality, fracture pattern, implant configuration and loading regime...

Proximal humerus fracture is a common arm trauma and rarely occurs with vascular injury which however is a serious complication. In this case report, we present a long segment dissection of the axillary and brachial arteries as a rare complication due to fragmented proximal humerus fracture and shoulder dislocation. An 80-year old female patient was seen at the emergency department. Radiograph examination has revealed a fragmented proximal humerus fracture besides dislocation of the head of humerus towards the axillary area...

Traumatic shoulder pain is pain directly attributed to a traumatic event, either acute or chronic. This pain may be the result of either fracture (the clavicle, scapula, or proximal humerus) or soft-tissue injury (most commonly of the rotator cuff, acromioclavicular ligaments, or labroligamentous complex). Imaging assessment of traumatic shoulder pain begins with conventional radiography and, depending on physical examination findings, will require MRI or MR arthrography for assessment of soft-tissue injuries and CT for delineation of fracture planes...

The objective of this study is to determine the reproducibility and feasibility of using 3-dimensional (3-D) computer simulation of proximal humerus fracture computed tomography (CT) scans for fracture reduction. We hypothesized that anatomic reconstruction with 3-D models would be anatomically accurate and reproducible. Preoperative CT scans of 28 patients with 3- and 4-part (AO classification 11-B1, 11-B2, 11-C1, 11-C2) proximal humerus fractures who were treated by hemiarthroplasty were converted into 3-D computer models...

BACKGROUND: Proximal humerus fractures are the third most common in the human body but their management remains controversial. Open reduction and internal fixation with plates is one of the leading modes of operative treatment for these fractures. The development of technologies and techniques for these plates, during the recent decades, promise a bright future for their clinical use. A comprehensive review of in vitro biomechanical studies is needed for the comparison of plates' mechanical performance and the testing methodologies...

OBJECTIVE: Proximal humerus fractures are highly traumatic and debilitating. Surgical fixation may be contraindicated in older clients, thus requiring a systematic rehabilitation protocol. These clients may suffer loss of independence and require long-term assistance if not treated properly. METHOD: In this case report, we describe the occupation-based conservative rehabilitation of a retired male client after a four-part proximal humerus fracture. Outcome measurements used were the QuickDASH, the Numeric Rating Scale for Pain, goniometric measurements, and manual muscle testing...

Older men who participated in a sporting activity were less likely to sustain any fracture or major osteoporotic fracture over a 6-year follow-up period. PURPOSE: Regular weight-bearing physical activity can reduce fracture risk through an increase in bone strength, as well as reducing falls risk by improving muscle strength and balance. In this study, we aimed to determine whether a specific type of physical activity, sports participation, reduces fracture risk in older Australian men...

Subscapularis injury in adolescents, usually associated to an avulsion fracture of the lesser humeral tuberosity, accounts for less than 2% of all fractures of the proximal humerus. Isolated tears of the subscapularis tendon without a history of dislocation and associated avulsion fractures are an even rarer occurrence, and treatment is controversial. This article describes a rare case of a 12-year-old suffering from an isolated subscapularis tear and discusses its management. The patient was evaluated at presentation, and at 1 to 2...

Shoulder arthroplasty has been performed increasingly during the last years. The concept of modern anatomic shoulder arthroplasty is based on C. S. Neer's first shoulder prosthesis in the 1950s which was originally designed for the treatment of fractures of the proximal humerus. Since then, this monoblock prosthesis has undergone many changes and improvements. By now, an anatomic reconstruction of the joint is possible. Hence, the indications for anatomic shoulder arthroplasty have been added amongst others by osteoarthritis, necrosis, rheumatoid arthritis or posttraumatic arthritis...

Objective: To develop a surgical technique for percutaneous upper extremity fracture fixation using a novel glass-based adhesive. Methods: Three intact upper extremity cadaveric specimens with undisturbed soft tissues were obtained. Two were used to model a wrist fracture, and the third to model a proximal humerus fracture. Fractures were produced using a small osteotome in a percutaneous fashion. Banna Bone Adhesive (BBA) was delivered to the fracture site percutaneously using a 16 gauge needle under bi-planar fluoroscopic guidance...

Aims Preserving growth following limb-salvage surgery of the upper limb in children remains a challenge. Vascularized autografts may provide rapid biological incorporation with the potential for growth and longevity. In this study, we aimed to describe the outcomes following proximal humeral reconstruction with a vascularized fibular epiphyseal transfer in children with a primary sarcoma of bone. We also aimed to quantify the hypertrophy of the graft and the annual growth, and to determine the functional outcomes of the neoglenofibular joint...

A 10-year-old girl presented to the emergency department with proximal radioulnar translocation and radial head fracture, after fall onto an outstretched hand. Open reduction was used to reduce and stabilise the elbow joint after which the radial head was fixated by Kirschner wires. Three months after surgery, full range of motion was regained and union of the radial head was achieved. Proximal radioulnar translocation is a rare injury which is often missed on initial radiographs. Persistent restriction of forearm rotation with seemingly normal elbow configuration must trigger to take a closer look at the relationship between the ulna, radius and distal humerus...
