The relationship of the humeral head prosthesis to the humerus is a critical determinant of the result in glenohumeral arthroplasty. With canal-fitting humeral prostheses, the position of the component is largely dictated by the location of the reamed medullary canal. This study explores the geometric relationships of a surgically defined humeral reference, the "orthopedic axis." This is the axis of a cylindric reamer or press-fit prosthetic stem inserted to the appropriate depth for the… CONTINUE READING
