Author(s): Dr. Sidhdhant R Shah, Dr. Sagar D Khanpara and Dr. Mohammed Nawaz M Malik
Abstract: To assess the functional outcome of proximal humerus fractures treated with Proximal Humerus Internal Locking System (PHILOS) plating. 40 consecutive patients were treated with PHILOS plating. The inclusion criteria were skeletally matured patients with closed fracture of proximal humerus. The outcome was assessed using Neer's scoring system. As per the Neers classification system, there were 1-part, 2-part, 3 and 4-part fracture respectively. However, proper patient selection, thorough knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanical principles are the pre-requisites for a successful surgery.
