SUMMARY

Treatment algorithms of proximal humerus fractures are still controversially discussed. The enthusiasm towards operative treatment after the introduction of locking implants, has not been justified by the functional results in the elderly population. The majority of those fractures in the geriatric patients can be successfully treated conservatively. Thorough clinical and radiological examination for fracture analysis, dynamic stability control with the use of an image intensifier, and meticulous reduction, in addition with the appropriate orthesis for its retention and rehabilitation, are the keys for the successful treatment of the proximal humerus fracture in the elderly patient. The present review reports on the main treatment aspects of proximal humerus fractures in the geriatric population and proposes a treatment algorithm.
