BACKGROUND This report documents our experiences with a new technique for reconstructing massive uncontained defects of the glenoid with reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS We use a modified deltopectoral approach to perform the combined allograft-autograft construct glenoid reconstruction. We make use of a peripherally seated… CONTINUE READING
