BACKGROUND Humeral component lateralization in reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) may improve the biomechanical advantage of the rotator cuff, which could improve the torque generated by the rotator cuff and increase internal and external rotation of the shoulder. PURPOSE The purpose of this in vitro biomechanical study was to evaluate the effect… CONTINUE READING
