Sir,

We read the article "Outcome of locking compression plates in humeral shaft nonunions" by Kumar et al. [1] with keen interest.

We would like to comment about a few discrepancies

  1. The authors have quoted a study by Ring et al. [2] It is mentioned by the authors that "Ring et al. had reported average interval of 28 months (range 5-192 months)," but we did not find these findings in the original article by Ring et al. [2]
  2. In the discussion the authors have mentioned that they inserted screws in all the holes of locking compression plate. They believed that reduced working length can minimize the failure of implant. However, literature reports mention that reduced working length can cause more strain on the implant and, hence, leads to plate failure. [3],[4]
