SUMMARY: For the treatment of proximal humerus fractures, the intramedullary nitinol scaffold is a novel implant that has gained popularity and demonstrated promising 1-year outcomes as an alternative to bone grafting for providing intramedullary structural support to the humeral head. The aim of this video is to demonstrate the insertion of this device safely, while highlighting potential pitfalls, in a 67-year-old patient with a displaced, varus angulated 2-part proximal humerus fracture.
