Objective: based on retrospective outcome review of surgical rehabilitation perform assessment of possible usage for intramedullary locking rod structures meant to treat comminuted fractures of humeral shafts. Material and Methods. The intramedullary cross-locking rods were used to fix the fragments. The structures were inserted into humeral shafts by antegrade or retrograde techniques. In most cases surgical interventions were conducted as fracture closed reductions, at that the length and the axis of the limbs were restored without any additional fixation of separate fragments. Results. The review of outcomes for 33 patients with complicated traumatic destructions of humeral shafts showed high efficiency of intramedullary locking rod structures at managing patients with this type of injuries. Conclusion. Small surgical trauma and solid fixation provide for early functional rehabilitation of injured extremities as well as patients» quick return to everyday routine and activity before the fracture heals completely.
