BACKGROUND Aseptic glenoid component loosening remains a common problem in total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). This study presents long-term prospective follow-up of 2 cemented all-polyethylene glenoid components with different backside design geometry and the effect on the presence and progression of radiolucent lines (RLLs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-six TSAs were performed for primary osteoarthritis. Two surgeons used an identical technique to implant 32 flat-back and 24 convex-back… CONTINUE READING
