ABSTRACT

Proximal humerus fracture is one of the common fractures seen in practice. Being metaphyseal region, it is less prone for nonunion. Although more than 80% of these heal with no surgical intervention, displaced unimpacted surgical neck fractures are associated with a higher incidence of nonunion with rates varying from less than 1% to as high as 23%. We report a case of 35-year-old male with nonunion following fracture of left proximal humerus.
