Abstract: Objectives: The goal of this study was to evaluate fracture healing and alignment as well as functional outcome and complication risks after internal fixation with the intramedullary proximal humeral nail (PHN). This device shows promise for applications involving the reconstruction of the humeral shaft and head with minimal soft tissue stripping and for providing a locked, fixed-angle construct for secure fixation to permit controlled, early, and active rehabilitation.
