Abstract: Limited evidence is available on the optimal treatment of complex fractures of the proximal humerus. No randomized prospective studies have compared hemiarthroplasty, open reduction internal fixation and/or conservative treatment. Two systematic reviews are available but they do not include angle-stable plate osteosynthesis or third-generation prosthetic designs.
