Management of proximal humerus fracture with PHILOS (Proximal Humerus Internal Locking System): A prospective study
Author(s): Dr. Sahil Kohli and Dr. J Sikdar
Abstract: Proximal humeral fractures may present with many different configurations in patients with varying co-morbidities and expectations. The PHILOS plate is preffered for long fractures because the plate is available in longer sizes and provides greater stability as it has a greater number of screws in the head area and greater variability and perehaps higher stability. This study was done to analyse union rate and shoulder joint function after fixation of proximal humerus fracture with PHILOS. We prospectivley reviewed thirty patients with proximal humerous fracture treated with PHILOS at M.M.I.M.S.R, Mullana. Serial follow up assessment was done for radiological and clinical union. Most common complication included superficial infections. It was concluded that fixation with PHILOS plate is a near-ideal technique with a high union rate.
