BACKGROUND Reverse anatomy shoulder prostheses, in which a partial sphere is attached to the scapula and a socket to the humerus, have become popular for the treatment of arthritic shoulders with severe rotator cuff arthropathy. While they have been in relatively common use, their biomechanical aspects have not been fully investigated. METHODS This study uses an adaptation of a 3D biomechanical shoulder model to describe the DELTA reverse prosthetic shoulder geometry and to investigate its… CONTINUE READING
