ROCHE, SJL  e  VRETTOS, BC. Surgery for displaced three- and four-part proximal humeral fractures: The rationale for our approach. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.3, pp. 16-21. ISSN 2309-8309.

There are a multitude of different surgical techniques described, practised and reported to have similar outcomes for displaced proximal humeral fractures. This paper reviews the outcomes of these techniques and the reason for using the different options; it also reviews the factors which affect outcomes. It will outline our decision-making process to justify the management of these fractures at the University of Cape Town.
