Abstract

As the most commonly used approach in the shoulder, deltopectoral approach is used for reduction and internal fixation of proximal humerus fractures, to treat bony glenoid injuries, shoulder arthroplasty, inferior capsular shift, biceps tenodesis, or rotator cuff repair if the procedure cannot be accomplished arthroscopically.
