Severe humeral erosion in a bedridden patient

A comprehensive intervention to prevent bone fracture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article reports a 1-yr prospective study related to a bedridden patient with rotator cuff tear arthropathy featuring severe erosion of the proximal part of the humerus. To prevent spontaneous humeral fracture, a comprehensive intervention was planned. This included drug therapy for osteoporosis and pain, nurse team training on patient handling techniques, and patient and caregiver education. After 1 yr, clinical and radiologic findings are stable.
