Abstract

Cementless surface replacement arthroplasty of the shoulder with biologic resurfacing of the glenoid. BACKGROUND: We report a retrospective review of surface replacement hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder with biologic resurfacing of the glenoid, for relatively young patients suffering from advanced glenohumeral arthritis. It was hoped that the resurfacing fascia would prevent glenoid erosion for a period of time. METHODS: This surgery was performed by two surgeons between 1996 and 2005. The indications for the arthroplasty were severe pain and limitation of function, in relatively young patients with advanced glenohumeral arthritis but an intact rotator cuff.
