In order to verify whether it is possible to reproduce the physiologic anterior elevation of the shoulder with a non constrained Neer type prosthesis, the authors have examined the dynamic comportement of 21 total shoulder arthroplasties. Recording of anterior active elevation with video-fluoroscopy and evaluation glenohumeral motion and scapulothoracic motion allowed to distinguish 3 types of biomechanics after total shoulder replacement. A first group of prosthesis (4 cases) had normal… CONTINUE READING
