9 to 10 pm CET



Proximal humeral fractures become increasingly prevalent with the rapidly expanding population.

In the past several surgical strategies, including locking plate fixation, intramedullary nailing and shoulder arthroplasty have been proven to be clinically effective

However, regarding joint preservation the scientific discussion on which fracture type suites better to an intramedullary or a plate osteosynthesis, is still ongoing.

In the upcoming battle webinar two internationally renowned trauma surgeons Oliver Trapp and Chlodwig Kirchhoff will elucidate the current base of evidence, focus on clinical outcomes and complications and defeat their own favored surgical approach: Nail versus Plate.
