Abstract

The Humerusblock NG represents a new semi-rigid angular stable fixation device for minimally invasive stabilization of proximal humeral fractures. This study evaluates the function and stability of the Humerusblock NG and its biomechanical properties on the basis of two different fracture models under cyclic loading.
