Treatment of acute proximal humeral fractures in children with modular external fixator
Conclusions Advantages of the external fixation are rapid mobilization of the joint, low invasiveness, a single surgery and the possibility to correct any secondary displacement. It is important to underline that the positioning of external fixator should be implanted by expert surgeons and that the patients must cooperate during the entire process up to the time of the removal of the fixator.
