Images from a 58-year-old man who underwent plate fixation of a left humerus shaft fracture 30 years ago and was treated with plate fixation combined with autogenous iliac crest bone grafting because of nonunion 1 year postoperatively. However, the humeral fracture remained un-united until he visited our institution. a Preoperative plain radiograph showing classic synovial pseudarthrosis nonunion of the left humerus with a broken plate. b Radiograph taken immediately after revision surgery showing double locking compression plating with autogenous iliac crest bone grafting. c, d Radiographs showing consolidated bone union at 45 months after the index surgery
