BACKGROUND Recreation of normal anatomical relationships may be important to optimize the outcome of proximal humeral arthroplasty. With use of computerized tomographic data and three-dimensional computer modeling, we concurrently studied both extramedullary and intramedullary humeral morphology, including canal shape, and related these findings to the design of proximal humeral prostheses. METHODS Sixty cadaveric humeri (thirty pairs: fifteen from male donors and fifteen from female donors… CONTINUE READING
