The article presents two speeches from U.S. Navy Medical Corps. Commander V. Franklin Sechriest II as well as from physician Douglas A. Dennis. Commander Sechriest emphasizes the contribution by the U.S. Navy to the victim of the Asian tsunami way back in 2004. Physician Dennis, on the other hand, stresses the importance of local surgeons, physicians and nurses in the joint replacement process and in the improvement of condition of patients who are suffering from advanced osteoarthritis.

    Background: Reported early complication rates in reverse total shoulder arthroplasty have widely varied from 0% to 75% in part due to a lack of standard inclusion criteria. In addition, it is unclear whether revision arthroplasty is associated with a higher rate of complications than primary...
