A humeral head support for repairing a multipart fracture of the proximal end of the humerus in humans has been described in a filed patent. The support comprises a base portion for attachment to an implant and a support portion to cradle the humeral head during repair of a four-part fracture. The support portion extends diagonally in a medial and distal direction from the base portion, positioned between the humeral head and lesser tuberosity of the humerus when implanted within the bone volume of the humerus.

The patent also includes a kit with multiple humeral head supports for repairing humeral fractures, each with a base portion and support portion. The kit offers different shapes and sizes of supports, with variations in length and width to accommodate different anatomies. The supports are designed to be attached to different types of implants, such as triangular surfaces or cylindrical intramedullary nails, and include anchoring points for stability. The kit provides versatility in addressing various types of humeral fractures and allows for customization based on individual patient needs.
