A 35-year-old male is involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffers the fracture shown in Figure A. This is an isolated shoulder injury, and he has no neurologic deficits on physical exam.

Immobilization in sling x 2 weeks then PT
Immobilization in sling x 8 weeks then PT
ORIF via a deltopectoral approach
ORIF via a posterior approach
ORIF via a lateral approach
