This study focuses on short term outcome of use of proximal humerus locking plating as a treatment of proximal humerus fracture using Constant Score.
Introduction: Proximal humerus fractures are one of the most common osteoporotic fractures. The major goal in the treatment of this fracture is to promote complication free healing to recreate a pain free mobile, stable and functional shoulder joint. We study the outcome of these fractures treated with proximal humerus locking plate.
Methodology: A cohort of 20 proximal humerus fracture, treated with proximal humerus locking plate between Sep 2015 to Sep 2016 were analysed for minimum of 6 months and final result was analysed using Constant Score.
Results: 75% patients had satisfactory results. Assessment was done using Constant Scoring System. No major complication was noted whatsoever.
