Abstract
Background: Diaphyseal humeral injuries account for 35% of all injuries. Treatment option varies from conservative cast and brace to internal fixation with plate and screws and intramedullary nailing. Among all options, plate osteosynthesis remains the gold standard for the operative fixation of humeral shaft fractures. In present series we have studied operative result of two different techniques in terms of operative difficulties, functional outcome and complications. Methods: Study was conducted over a period of three years on thirty patients with closed acute humeral shaft fracture requiring operative interventions. In all patients, an AO 4.5 mm dynamic compression plate or Locking Compression Plate was used through anterior approach in 15 patients and posterior approach in 15 patients. Post-operatively regular follow up done and during each follow up radiological and functional outcome evaluated. Result: In all patients fracture united in mean weeks of 13.5. Mean shoulder flexion 1590 , extension 48.50 ,abduction 162.50,external rotation 76.50 and internal rotation 590. Mean range of motion of elbow 00-1390. Out of 15 patients of posterior plate group complications were: Infection- 1 (6.6%); iatrogenic radial nerve palsy 4(26.6%). Out of 15 patients of anterior plate group no complications were observed. Conclusion: For patients requiring surgical treatment of shaft humeral fractures by plating, anterior and posterior approach both provide statistically comparable results but anterior humerus plating provides less complication rate and convenient operative position (for anesthesia) which makes it preferred approach.

Key words: Shaft humerus fracture, plate osteosynthesis, anterior vs posterior approach

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
