Fractures of the Humeral Shaft Docsity.com Introduction • Humeral fractures traditionally treated nonsurgically, with predictably satisfactory outcomes. • Strong bias formerly existed against surgical intervention due to high rate of complications. • Both operative and nonoperative treatments have been refined. Docsity.com Relevant Anatomy • Humeral diaphysis extends from the upper border of the insertion of the pectoralis major proximally to the supracondylar ridge distally • Fracture alignment determined by the location of the fracture relative to the major muscle attachments, most notably the pectoralis major and deltoid attachments Docsity.com Deforming Forces • Example of a fracture distal to pectoralis major attachment and proximal to deltoid tuberosity • Adduction of proximal fragment results Reproduced with permission from Epps H Jr., Grant RE: “Fractures of the shaft of the humerus” in Rockwood CA Jr., Green DP, Bucholz RW (Eds.)
