Abstract

Fractures of the humeral shaft are relatively common injuries. The uniqueness in the anatomy, the fracture configuration and the functional significance of the region influences the treatment options. The rules of managing certain clinical variants of humeral diaphyseal fractures need  to  be  addressed  surgically, this is the present consensus. Since ours is not  a comparative study, no statement regarding superiority or otherwise can be made with regard to plate Osteo-synthesis. Indeed in one of our own non-union case we have had to  resort to LCP with bone grafting. Thoraco-brachial immobilization involved use of the body as a splint. This was achieved by using body strapping  or by shoulder arm spica application. This method of treatment was not reliable for maintaining the alignment of the bone and promotion of bone healing .
