To evaluate functional outcome of proximal humerus interlocking osteosynthesis (PHILOS) plating by constant & murley scoring system for treatment of displaced proximal humerus fractures
Author(s): Dr. Lavesh Agrawal and Dr. Susheel Soni
Abstract: Background: This is a Prospective study carried out at Department of Orthopaedics & traumatology, Index Medical College Hospital & Research Centre, Indore for One Year. 30 patients of proximal humerus fracture were attended in casualty and OPD and were admitted.
Result: Age variation in series was from 18 to 70 years. Proximal Humerus Fracture was found to have high incidence in 51 to 70 years age group.
In our series of 30 patients, treated by PHILOS plating most common complication was varus malunion and least common complication was implant failure.
Conclusion: Fractures of the upper end of humerus account for 4-5% of all fractures. They occur more frequently in older patients after the cancellous bone has become weakened by senility and osteoporosis. In older patients even less severe trauma (fall) can produce significant injury which is the most common cause. In our study 53% belongs to 51 to 70 years age group.
PHILOS plates are pre-shaped & pre-contoured plates to match proximal humeral anatomy with multiple proximal locking screw placement options has made fixation of complex fractures easy. It provides rigid fixation, enhanced axial & angular stability & allows early mobilization of the shoulder without compromising fracture union.
