The article presents a synthesis on the peer-reviewed evidence to clarify the modes of polyethylene glenoid component failure (GCF) in total shoulder arthroplasty, and suggests strategies for addressing each of these modes. Based on the synthesis, it has been observed that GCF occurred when its component failed to replicate essential properties of the normal glenoid articular surface. The synthesis also showed that there is little progress in strategies for reducing the risk of GCF.
