BACKGROUND Modern prosthetic components are designed to enable restoration of proximal humeral morphology, provided that a precise osteotomy of the humeral head at the level of the anatomic neck is performed. To determine whether a simulated osteotomy and replacement arthroplasty with an idealized implant were able to restore original head geometry. MATERIALS AND METHODS A handheld digitizer and surface laser scanner were used to digitize 24 humeri. Computer models were used to simulate an… CONTINUE READING
