BACKGROUND As far as we know, no previous study has determined the relationship between volume and outcomes for shoulder arthroplasty. We hypothesized that surgeons and hospitals with higher caseloads of total shoulder arthroplasties and hemiarthroplasties have better outcomes as measured by decreased mortality rate, shorter length of stay in the hospital,(More)
The selection between total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) and hemiarthroplasty (HA) for the treatment of glenohumeral osteoarthritis is largely a matter of the surgeon's preference. We evaluated practice patterns among surgeons and hospitals in using shoulder arthroplasty procedures for osteoarthritis. Patients undergoing TSA (8,743 cases) and HA (4,998(More)
