The primary objective of this study is to examine quality of life outcomes in patients who have undergone a humeral surface replacement hemiarthroplasty.
Resurfacing arthroplasty is gaining popularity for the reconstruction of advanced shoulder arthritis. New generation re-surfacing prostheses are engineered to anatomically restore a smooth articulating surface to the humeral head, while preserving bone stock, and potentially minimizing the risk for diaphyseal fracture. The results for shoulder resurfacing prostheses have largely been reported in retrospective reviews and have been very favorable. The purpose of this multi-centered, prospective study will be to determine the extent to which patient self-assessed outcomes (American Shoulder and Elbow Society (ASES) Score) following humeral resurfacing improve compared to pre-operative ASES scores.

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).
A single-pass transmembrane CELL SURFACE RECEPTOR that binds ADVANCED GLYCOSYLATION END PRODUCTS to mediate cellular responses to both acute and chronic vascular inflammation in conditions such as ATHEROSCLEROSIS and DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2 . It also binds AMYLOID BETA PEPTIDES and the alarmins S100A12 and S100 CALCIUM BINDING PROTEIN BETA SUBUNIT.
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.
