Abstract: Neer Group (IV-VI) Proximal humeral fractures often are related to persistent disability despite surgical treatment.

We retrospectively compared the outcome after open reduction and internal fixation with the PHILOS and primary hemiarthroplasty in patients with Neer Group IV-VI fractures focusing on Speed of recovery, shoulder function, health-related quality of life, and complications.
