These types of fracture are usually caused by direct, high-energy forces, and may be life-threatening. Isolated fractures can occur with repetitive stress and in the presence of metabolic bone disorders, or primary or secondary bone tumours. The area most susceptible to stress fracture is the medial junction of the proximal and middle third of the femur, which occurs as a result of the compression forces on the medial femur.

Bruising extending along the arm distally and along the chest wall is often present a few days following injury. The proximal humerus consists of four bony parts: humeral head (articular surface), greater tuberosity, lesser tuberosity and the humeral diaphysis. Radiographs should include anteroposterior, lateral and axillary views, and often a CT reconstruction scan to assess the fragments involved. Fracture stability can be assessed by placing one hand on the humeral head while gently rotating the humeral shaft internally and externally.

The purpose of fasciotomy is to achieve prompt and adequate decompression so as to restore the tissue perfusion. The surgeon should be familiar with the visual recognition of necrotic tissue because thorough debridement reduces the potential of infection and improves the chances of tissue recovery.
