The article presents a research study on the new concepts, results and component wear analysis of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. Clinical outcomes of the said arthroplasty show significant results in treating pseudoparalysis of shoulder elevation associated with a massive rotator cuff tear. Several investigations conclude that reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is stronger in terms of abduction strength of a rotator cuff-deficient shoulder by the use of implant designs.
