ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the history, indications, and outcomes related to the application of reverse shoulder arthroplasty in managing irreparable massive rotator cuff tears without arthritis. It states that the reverse shoulder arthroplasty was established to enhance the clinical outcomes for patients who have rotator cuff deficiency and glenohumeral arthritis. It mentions that the eligible candidates for reverse shoulder arthroplasty should show forward pseudoparalysis.
