Proximal humerus fracture

Proximal humerus fractures usually verify at the level of the surgical neck of humerus.

Patients over 50 years old often find their traumatic mechanism in a simple fall, while younger people may reveal it after a violent trauma, fall from a higher point, car crashes and sports traumas.

The symptomatology is characterised by intense pain beyond the area of the injury and immediate functional impotence.
Pain worsens even after minor movements of the shoulder. X-rays are usually the means that helps diagnosis, together with a possible and following CT scan.

When the dislocation is modest, fracture is compound and the suggested treatment is conservative adjoined by the immobilisation of the limb through brace for 20-25 days and a rehabilitation cycle: mobilisations and pendular exercises and for the recovery of the muscular strength ad proprioception.
