A Comparative Study of Treatment of Humeral Shaft Fractures using Interlocking Nail vs. AO Dynamic Compression Plate Fixation
Introduction: The treatment methods of the fractures of humerus are treated in many ways. Interlocking nails and plates have both stood the test of time but the present study looks at both methods scientifically.
Material and Methods: It was a prospective, compa-rative, study of two groups of patients of fractures of humerus treated with dynamic compression plate ver-sus with interlocking nails.
Results: Fractures in both groups healed uneventfully without significant complications.
Conclusion: Both modes of treatment can be recom-mended for the treatment of fractures of the shaft of Humerus with minimal chances of complications.
