Nerve stress during reverse total shoulder arthroplasty: a cadaveric study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Neurologic lesions are relatively common after total shoulder arthroplasty. These injuries are mostly due to traction. We aimed to identify the arm manipulations and steps during reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) that affect nerve stress. METHODS Stress was measured in 10 shoulders of 5 cadavers by use of a tensiometer on each nerve… (More)
