Segmental fractures of humerus are difficult to treat. Various options exist for treating ipsilateral metadiaphyseal fractures of humerus but have their own set of complications. Management of these fractures with long angular stable plates gives us an advantage of treating these two level fractures simultaneously thereby reducing complications and postoperative morbidity. Applying minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) principles helps in the biological healing of fracture by being minimally invasive and preserving blood supply to the soft tissues. We are presenting a small series of ipsilateral metadiaphyseal fractures humerus using long angular stable plates in an MIPO fashion.
