Aim of the study is to analyze results of treatment of proximal humerus fractures with mini-invasive technique and plate fixation.
In all the patients a analysis of presence of osteoporosis will be done, clinical and x-ray results will be statistically analyzed to evidence any connection between clinical outcomes and osteoporosis.

proximal humerus fracture
Patients with proximal humerus fracture treated with mini-invasive plate.
Procedure: proximal humerus fracture fixation
Mini-invasive proximal humerus fixation with plate, patient in beach chair position, general anesthesia, a small incision lateral to shoulder is made to insert the plate under scope control
- correlate osteoporosis (Cortical index) with clinical (Constant score) and radiological (X-ray) results of the procedure [ Time Frame: 30 months average ]Osteoporosis will be analyzed with the cortical Index, already described in previous articles about this topic. Clinical evaluation will consider the Constant score, the most used functional score for shoulder. X-ray evaluation will analyze the healing of the fracture, studied by a radiologist, and mobilization of the plate or screws. Data will be combined to analyze correlation between clinical results, plate and screws stability and osteoporosis.
