Pyrocarbon (PyC) interposition shoulder arthroplasty can be used to treat advanced collapse of the humeral head after avascular necrosis. We examined outcomes for this bone-preserving implant which has a PyC coating and a novel biomechanical concept. For a minimum of 2 years, we followed 10 patients (4 men, 6 women, 55.6 ± 12.9 years) treated with a free… CONTINUE READING
