Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate our results for the treatment of three-part fracture of proximal humerus in adults with plate and screws. Patients and methods The study was done and followed up on 15 patients for 2 years. Deltopectoral approach has been used for all the patients. All patients had clinical and radiological evaluation at regular periods during their follow-up. The age of patients range from 23 to 77 years with a mean age of 51.9 years. Results The constant score was used for clinical evaluation of patients. In the constant method of functional assessment, a 100-point score is based on the assessment of a number of individual subjective and objective parameters in an entirely clinical setting.We have four cases representing 26.67% of all patients who had complications; one patient was complicated by stiffness, two patients with nonunion, and one patient with infection. Conclusion With short-term follow-up, the internal fixation with plate and screws is effective in the treatment of three-part fractures of the proximal humerus in adults.
