Surgical management of proximal humerus fractures using PHILOS plate
Author(s): Dr. Vaibhav Bhadbhade and Dr. Channabasava
Abstract: PHILOS plate offers a good functional outcome in proximal humerus fractures with context to the early joint mobilisation and rigid fixation of the fracture. This study was planned to evaluate clinical outcome and time required for fracture healing following open reduction and internal fixation with PHILOS plate for displaced proximal humerus fractures. A total of 30 patients with proximal humerus fracture underwent open reduction and internal fixation using PHILOS plate through deltopectoral approach. The range of motion at first, second and third follow ups increased gradually during subsequent follow ups with early radiological and clinical union. Most of the patients had good outcome (47%) followed by fair (26%), excellent (20%) and poor outcome (7%).
