Shoulder Arthroplasty

Overview

Shoulder Arthroplasty System designed for hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder has enjoyed nearly a decade of clinical success. The variety of head types and sizes, allow the surgeon to better recreate the normal anatomy which is so important in tensioning of the soft tissues for joint stability and providing maximum postoperative function.

The modular components also allow the surgeon to better reconstruct the rotator cuff tuberosity mechanism in difficult acute fractures and chronic malunions of the proximal humerus. The modular design enables the surgeon to easily revise a hemiarthroplasty by allowing unobstructed access to the glenoid.

The modularity in both the implants and instruments, increase intraoperative flexibility, offering the surgeon an excellent overall system to perform hemi-arthroplasty tailored to each patient.

The device is intended for use with a humeral stem inserted with bone cement.

The most common indications for Shoulder Arthroplasty are:

Non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease including osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis Rheumatoid arthritis Revision where other devices or treatments have failed Correction of functional deformity Fractures of the proximal humerus, where other methods of treatment are deemed inadequate Difficult clinical management problems, including cuff arthropathy, where other methods of treatment may not be suitable or may be inadequate/
