The authors report the preliminary results of osteosynthesis with percutaneous wiring in the treatment of fractures of the proximal humerus. This method which is still described in very few cases, is characterized by several advantages such as its minor invasiveness, and respect for vascularization of the fragments that guarantee good functional results. The application of threaded pins or pins of large diameter guarantees excellent hold with a low incidence of loosening secondary to loss of reduction. The use of a traction device applied to the surgical table simplifies reduction maneuvers and osteosynthesis.
