Loosening of the glenoid component has been cited as the most frequent cause of patient dissatisfaction with total shoulder arthroplasty, and it has been demonstrated in clinical studies that misalignment of the prostheses can be a causative factor. Finite element analyses of five different glenoid component alignments (central, anteverted, retroverted, inferiorly inclined, and superiorly inclined) were conducted in order to predict changes in the survivability of the cement mantle surrounding… CONTINUE READING
