Correcting Glenoid Deficiencies in Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Using a Novel Humeral Head Autograft

Correcting Glenoid Deficiencies in Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Using a Novel Humeral Head Autograft

This mono-center research study evaluates clinical and radiological outcomes of a novel bone grafting technique using a metal back glenoid component in anatomical total shoulder arthroplasty.  This technique is being used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, or inflammatory arthritis, with evidence of glenoid bone loss.  Safety and efficacy will be measured by a five year composite clinical success (CCS) that requires functional improvement, radiographic stability, absence of reoperations and revision, and lack of serious device-related adverse events.  Patient outcomes will be measured through use of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) and Constant Score.  For additional information, please e-mail us at info@forceresearch.org.
