Abstract

The purpose of our study was to assess the effect of comorbidity and duration of nonunion on the general health status and joint-specific outcome of a group of patients treated for nonunion of the humeral shaft. We identified 25 consecutive patients with nonunion of the humeral shaft, all treated with compression plating and bone grafting. Twenty-one patients returned for a comprehensive assessment including completion of the SF 36 Health Status Survey and determination of the Constant shoulder and Morrey elbow scores. Thirteen patients had ≥1 comorbid conditions. Eleven patients had a nonunion of >8 months' duration, and 10 had a nonunion of
