RYAN, P et al. Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for complex proximal humeral fractures in the elderly: How to improve outcomes and avoid complications. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.1, pp.25-33. ISSN 2309-8309.

The use of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for the management of complex proximal humerus fractures has gained popularity in the last five to ten years. We present a concise review of conservative and surgical treatment of proximal humerus fractures and a more detailed review of published series of reverse shoulder arthroplasty for fracture treatment. We discuss ways of optimising results and avoiding complications.

Keywords : reverse shoulder; shoulder replacement; proximal humerus fracture.
