The article focuses on the research that determines the incidence of complications of total shoulder arthroplasty, a surgical procedure. The overall percentage of complications and the prevalence of each type of complication as a percentage of all complications were calculated for comparison with the findings of previous analysis. Present analysis revealed 414 complication events in association with 2810 total shoulder replacements. The present report on the complications included 39 clinical studies with a minimum duration of follow-up of two years.

    Revision of a shoulder arthroplasty often requires removal of a well fixed humeral component. Revision of this component can be quite easy in the case of a non-infected platform stem or be very difficult when removal of a well cemented or on-growth stem with distal texturing is required. The...

    Subscapularis tenotomy for total shoulder arthroplasty has been the standard approach for shoulder surgeons that utilize the deltopectoral approach. The risk of subscapularis insufficiency after this approach has been well documented. In order to avoid subscapularis complications, Lafosse...

    Worldwide, the usage of both anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (aTSA) and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA) has increased significantly due, in part, to the predictability of acceptable outcomes achieved with each prosthesis type. This study quantifies outcomes using five different...

    Loosening of the glenoid component is a frequent cause of failure of total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). The etiology of glenoid component loosening is multifactorial and includes aseptic osteolysis, rotator cuff insufficiency, soft tissue instability, and infection. A loose glenoid component is...

    Background: Glenoid component loosening continues to be a major factor affecting the long-term survivorship of total shoulder replacements. Radiolucent lines, cement fracture, migration, and loosening requiring revision are common problems with cemented glenoid components. The purpose of this...
