To evaluate intraoperative technical difficulties during PHILOS plating for treatment of displaced proximal humerus fractures
Author(s): Dr. Ankit Verma and Dr. Ajay Mandloi
Background: This is a Prospective study carried out at Department of Orthopaedics & traumatology, Amaltas Institute of Medical Sciences, Dewas, M.P. in 30 patients of proximal humerus fracture were attended in casualty and OPD and were admitted.
Result: Most of the injuries caused by was road traffic accident. In our study, patients with two part fracture had better functional outcome as compared to patients with three and four part fracture.
Conclusion: The internal fixation with the PHILOS plate seems to be a reliable option in the operative treatment of upper end humeral fractures, especially in osteoporotic bone. It allows secure fracture fixation and quick shoulder mobilization. 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.
