To avoid potential polyethylene problems in younger shoulders with degenerative joint disease (DJD) requiring arthroplasty, lateral meniscus allograft (LMA) was used as a biologic resurfacing of the glenoid. We report preliminary, short-term results of this technique in a younger, higher-demand population. The shoulders of 20 men and 10 women, with an average age of 42 years (range, 18 to 52 years), underwent total shoulder arthroplasty with a LMA. A metallic prosthesis was used on the humerus… CONTINUE READING
