to determine the results after open intramedullary nailing and tension band suture technique in proximal humerus fracture for improving the stability and decreasing the complications. Materials and Method: Authors reviewed 27 patients treated by open intramedullary nailing and tension band suture technique. Mean follow-up period was 39 months (24-59months). Surgical neck fracture were 6 cases, surgical neck fracture with shaft fracture were 3 cases, three part fracture with greater tuberosity fracture were 17 cases, four part fracture was 1 case and fracture and dislocation were 2 cases Results: We got the bony union in 26 cases. Average pain scale was 1 point (0-6), Neer score was 86 point(45-99) and ASES score was 85 point(40-100). We separate all cases in two groups based on age (65 years), L-spine t-score (-2.5) and Neer classification (2 and 3 part). There is no significance in pain scale, Neer score and ASES score between each group. Conclusion: As a method of surgical treatment on severe proximal humeral fractures, we recommend intramedullary nailing and tension band suture technique and it may have particular advantages in early exercise and satisfactory functional outcome.
