Introduction: Proximal humerus fractures are one of the commonest fractures occurring in the skeleton representing approximately 4% of all fractures and 26% of humerus fractures. Fractures that occur in the elderly usually result from a trivial fall on an outstretched hand or the side of the shoulder. Younger patients with these injuries are more likely due to high energy trauma following road traffic accidents and present with significant associated injuries. Aim: To evaluate the outcome of open reduction and internal fixation using locking compression plate for proximal humeral fractures.
