Abstract

Proximal humeral fracture is one of the most common osteoporotic fractures in elderly people. The proper treatment choice is controversial. Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with plate and screws is currently the most common treatment for the majority of displaced proximal humeral fractures. The aim of this systematic review is to investigate the surgical treatment outcomes of PHFs, focusing on main used devices and surgical approaches.
