Historically, patients with rotator cuff arthropathy had limited reconstructive options. The early generations of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA) designs had increased failure rates due to loosening of glenoid baseplates secondary to excessive torques. In 1985, Paul Grammont introduced a prosthetic design changing the center of rotation that addressed this major complication. The Grammont principles remain the foundation of modern reverse total shoulder prostheses, although the original design has undergone several adaptations...

BACKGROUND: The glenoid component in reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is recommended to be positioned inferiorly or with a downward tilt with the intention of reducing scapular notching. However, it is still unclear whether modifying the position of the glenoid prosthesis affects implant stability. The aim of this study was to determine the association between implant positioning and glenoid prosthesis fixation using Grammont reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. METHODS: Four positions for the glenoid prosthesis were studied using the finite element method...

PURPOSE: The reverse shoulder prost hesis (rTSA) is now implanted by the same percentage of anatomic shoulder prosthesis in the USA. Scapular notching and loss of extrarotation have been underlined as complication at long-term follow-up due to the Grammont design. The current trend to reduce those limits is to position both components lateralized. As the role of the subscapularis tendon in this new rTSA design is unclear, the purpose of this study is to quantify rTSA outcomes in patients with or without subscapularis tendon suture...

BACKGROUND: Bony increased-offset reverse shoulder arthroplasty (BIO-RSA) may address issues such as inferior scapular notching, prosthetic instability and limited postoperative shoulder rotation; all of which have been reported with the standard RSA and attributed to the medialized design. We hypothesised that this lateralization may increase the rate of scapular stress fractures. METHODS: A retrospective review of prospectively collected data was performed on patients who had undergone a RSA between January 2013 and October 2016...

BACKGROUND: Scapular fractures after reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) are an increasingly reported complication. Information is missing regarding midterm to long-term follow-up consequences. The aim of this study was to determine the rate of scapular fracture (acromial base and spine) after Grammont-style RSA and to report functional and radiographic results of patients with a minimum 5-year follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 1953 Grammont-style RSAs in 1745 patients in a multicenter study...

HYPOTHESIS: Grammont-style reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) has an increased risk of nerve injury compared with anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) due to arm lengthening. We hypothesized that an RSA with a lateralized glenosphere and 135° neck-shaft angle would reduce humeral lengthening and decrease the risk of nerve injury to the level of a TSA. METHODS: The study prospectively enrolled 50 consecutive patients undergoing RSA (n = 30) or TSA (n = 20) as determined by a power analysis based on previous research for our institution...

BACKGROUND: Scapular notching is frequently observed following reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA), although the etiology is not well understood. METHODS: Twenty-nine patients with preoperative computed tomography (CT) scans who underwent rTSA with a Grammont design were evaluated after a minimum of 2 years of follow-up with video motion analysis (VMA), postoperative three-dimensional (3D) CT, and standard radiographs. The glenohumeral range of motion demonstrated by the VMA and the postoperative implant location on the CT were used in custom simulation software to determine areas of osseous impingement between the humeral implant and the scapula and their relationship to scapular notching on postoperative CT...

Heterotopic ossification and scapular notching are common following reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. Compared with the original Grammont-style prosthesis with a medialized center of rotation (COR) and a 155° neck-shaft angle, lateralization of COR and reduction of neck-shaft angle have been associated with decreased incidence of scapular notching. The authors hypothesized that these design features may also be effective in reducing heterotopic ossification after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. Ninety-seven consecutive patients who underwent reverse total shoulder arthroplasty performed by a single surgeon were included in the study...

Shoulder arthroplasty has been performed increasingly during the last years. The concept of modern anatomic shoulder arthroplasty is based on C. S. Neer's first shoulder prosthesis in the 1950s which was originally designed for the treatment of fractures of the proximal humerus. Since then, this monoblock prosthesis has undergone many changes and improvements. By now, an anatomic reconstruction of the joint is possible. Hence, the indications for anatomic shoulder arthroplasty have been added amongst others by osteoarthritis, necrosis, rheumatoid arthritis or posttraumatic arthritis...

The regulation of morphogenesis by the basement membrane (BM) may rely on changes in its mechanical properties. To test this, we developed an atomic force microscopy-based method to measure BM mechanical stiffness during two key processes in Drosophila ovarian follicle development. First, follicle elongation depends on epithelial cells that collectively migrate, secreting BM fibrils perpendicularly to the anteroposterior axis. Our data show that BM stiffness increases during this migration and that fibril incorporation enhances BM stiffness...

BACKGROUND: The concept of onlay design reverse shoulder arthroplasty has been introduced to overcome complications observed with the traditional Grammont-type prosthesis. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of arm lengthening on the short-term clinical outcome in onlay reverse shoulder arthroplasty and investigate the effect of humeral tray offset positioning on arm lengthening and range of motion. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 56 patients undergoing reverse shoulder arthroplasty with the Aequalis Ascend Flex prosthesis (Tornier, Bloomington, MN, USA) at a minimum 2 years' follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Despite the increasing numbers of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) procedures, the long-term results have been rarely reported. We previously reported early outcomes of a cohort of patients treated with a Grammont-style RTSA. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes after a minimum of 10 years, and to document prosthetic survival and complications. METHODS: Clinical outcome assessment was based on the absolute and relative Constant scores and the active range of motion...

BACKGROUND: Manufacturers of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) implants have recently designed innovative implants to optimize performance in rotator cuff-deficient shoulders. These advancements are not without tradeoffs and can have negative biomechanical effects. The objective of this study was to develop an integrated finite element analysis-kinematic model to compare the muscle forces and joint reaction forces (JRFs) of 3 different RSA designs. METHODS: A kinematic model of a normal shoulder joint was adapted from the Delft model and integrated with the well-validated OpenSim shoulder model...
