Abstract

Humeral shaft fractures are typically treated nonoperatively with a functional brace; however, approximately 6% of these fractures progress to nonunion. Humeral shaft nonunions are a significant source of patient morbidity and can be challenging complications for orthopedic surgeons to treat. This chapter reviews the management of humeral shaft nonunions and discusses a variety of treatment modalities. Particular emphasis is placed on patient presentation, medical optimization, and surgical intervention.
