Seventy-two total shoulder arthroplasties performed using Neer II press-fit humeral components and followed for an average of 4.1 years (range, 2-7.8 years) were analyzed radiographically. A humeral component was considered radiographically at risk for clinical loosening when a radiolucent line > or =2 mm in width was present in > or =3 zones or tilt or subsidence was identified on sequential radiographs by 2 of 3 or 3 of 3 independent observers. Forty components (55.6%) were judged to be at… CONTINUE READING
