Fractures of the proximal humerus in the pediatric age

Abstract

In the paediatric population, sports, falls and car accidents can result in proximal humerus fractures. Since the proximal humeral growth plate is responsible for up to 80% of the growth of the humerus, remodelling of these fractures in children is enormous: the younger the patient, the higher the potential for remodelling. Most proximal paediatric humeral fractures can be treated successfully by closed means. However, some patient factors or fracture characteristics may prompt for surgical treatment.
