Large metaphyseal volume hemiprostheses for complex fractures of the proximal humerus
Sandro F Fucentese, Reto Sutter, Fabian Wolfensperger, Bernhard Jost & Christian Gerber
The 2-year results with a large metaphyseal volume fracture-prosthesis showed good to excellent results, with a failure rate of 14%. Substantial resorption of the greater tuberosity was frequent, but was not associated with functional incompetence of the rotator cuff. The overall results obtained justify its continued use.
