Abstract :

 Background: Humeral shaft fractures accounts for approximately 3% of all the fractures. The causes mainly includes fall from height, road traffic accidents, assault and sometimes pathological. The plate osteosynthesis is the gold standard for the treatment of humeral shaft fractures. Here in this study we evaluated the anteromedial plate osteosynthesis of humerus with respect to the incidence of iatrogenic radial nerve palsies, the mean operation time required to perform the surgery, and also time taken for fracture to unite . Methods: A retrospective study was conducted at Department of Orthopaedics, Viswabharathi Medical College, Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh from July 2012 to July 2015 with a total of 30 patients were included in the study were operated with anteromedial plate osteosynthesis.. Results: Among 30 patients 20 were males and 10 were females. Majority of the patients were with the history of road traffic accidents ..The mean operating time of anteromedial osteosynthesis was 55.5+5.00minutes. The incidence of iatrogenic radial nerve palsy is nil with that of anteromedial plate osteosynthesis.
