Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty – A Literature Review

The Open Orthopaedics Journal 6 Sept 2013 RESEARCH ARTICLE DOI: 10.2174/1874325001307010366

Abstract

Professor Grammont revolutionised shoulder surgery with his reverse shoulder arthroplasty design. Patients who had poor results from a conventional shoulder replacement because of cuff deficiency can now be treated effectively. Although designed for cuff tear arthropathy, indications continue to evolve and broaden. The initial results look very promising and the implant has gained much popularity over the years. The article provides an extensive literature review of the indications, results and complications for reverse shoulder arthroplasty.

Keywords: Cuff deficiency, shoulder arthritis, shoulder arthroplasty, reverse shoulder arthroplasty, rotator cuff arthropathy.
