Background. Proximal humeral fractures are frequent, and their results are often insufficient, particulary for functional limitation of the shoulder.
Methods. At the I Division of Orthopaedics of CTO hospital (Turin), a case series of 350 patients treated by plaster, external tutor or Desault for proximal humeral fractures classificated by Neer method has been re-examined.
Results. Results have been evaluated by Constant score (for clinic) and by Paavolainen scale (for radiography).
Conclusions. On the basis of the results obtained the conclusion is drawn that a more accuracy in the evaluation of X-rays will more often suggest a surgical indication (synthesis or prosthesis) in these fractures.
