The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use and efficacy of the Reverse® Shoulder Prosthesis for treatment of rotator cuff deficiency in subjects who are candidates for a total shoulder replacement (primary and revision subjects).
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty for the treatment of rotator cuff deficiency and glenohumeral arthritis have shown favorable outcomes in pain and function over the short and medium term. A prospective, multi-center study on the outcomes of subjects treated with the RSP would be a valuable addition to the literature and give important information regarding an ever-increasing treatment option for subjects with rotator cuff deficiency. The study will take place at multiple sites across the United States and will be managed by the DJO Surgical Clinical Affairs Department. The study will include only subjects who meet the indications for use criteria for the Reverse® Shoulder Prosthesis and who are candidates for total shoulder replacement surgery.

Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.
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.
