Overview

A humerus fracture can be classified by the location of the humerus involved: the upper end, the shaft, or the lower end.

At the upper end, the surgical neck of the humerus and anatomical neck of humerus can both be involved, though fractures of the surgical neck are more common. The axillary nerve can be damaged in fractures of this type.
