Glenohumeral stability from concavity-compression: A quantitative analysis.


The purpose of this research was to determine the degree to which compression of the humeral head into the glenoid concavity stabilizes it against translating forces. Ten normal fresh-frozen cadaver glenohumeral joints in which the labrum was preserved were used. A compressive load of 50 N was applied to the humeral head in a direction perpendicular to the… (More)
