Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Healing (migration) of tuberculum majus and minus measured with use of MB-RSA [ Time Frame: five years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation between bone density and prosthesis migration (and tuberculum migration) [ Time Frame: five years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Range of Motion (ROM) [ Time Frame: five years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Winsta PH osteosynthesis device (Fischer Medical)for treatment of humeral fracture
Procedure: Winsta PH osteosynthesis device
The Winsta PH osteosynthesis device have been developed for use in treatment of proximal humerus fractures.
Other Name: Winsta PH osteosynthesis device (Fischer Medical)

Detailed Description:

We shall measure the following clinical parameters with the help of the Constant Shoulder Score (CSS) and Western Ontario Osteoarthritis of the Shoulder Index (WOOS):

  1. Pain
  2. Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
  3. Range of Motion (ROM)
  4. Muscle strength

We shall measure the following radiologic parameters:

  1. Healing (migration) of tuberculum majus and minus measured with use of MB-RSA
  2. Plate migration with use of MB-RSA
  3. Bone density in the proximal humerus measured with Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA)
  4. Correlation between bone density and prosthesis migration (and tuberculum migration)
