In vitro wear studies demonstrate decreased polyethylene wear with a ceramic compared with a metal humeral head. In this in vivo study, we analyzed prospectively collected 5-year data, comparing the outcomes of 2 types of humeral implants.

The increased humeral retroversion on the dominant side of throwing athletes is thought to result from repetitive throwing motion. Little Leaguer's shoulder-a rotational stress fracture of the proxima...
The ideal glenohumeral radial mismatch following anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) remains ill defined, with biomechanical and clinical studies recommending a range between 4 and 10 mm. This ...
Glenoid bone loss is frequently encountered in arthritic conditions. The Walch classification is commonly used to categorize glenoid bone loss into several different types. Preoperative CT can assist ...
To investigate if the use of autologous bone graft around the anchor-peg glenoid prosthesis correlates with bony apposition on computed tomography scans, decreased radiolucent lines and co...
The purpose of this study is to investigate if the use of autologous bone graft around the anchor-peg glenoid prosthesis correlates with (1.) bony apposition on computed tomography scans, ...
To investigate the assumption that reversed shoulder prosthetic replacement will give a better functional outcome compared to open reduction and internal fixation with an angular stable pl...
Proximal humeral fractures are common injuries with the highest incidence being amongst the elderly. Most proximal humeral fractures are nondisplaced or minimally displaced. The majority o...
Reverse shoulder prosthesis has recently emerged as an acute treatment for complex proximal humeral fractures. Promising functional results have been reported in observational papers. How...
Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.
A depression in the lateral angle of the scapula that articulates with the HUMERAL HEAD.
The portion of the upper rounded extremity fitting into the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA. (from Stedman, 27th ed)
The articulation between the head of the HUMERUS and the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA.
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.
