Special Issue Information
With the increasing success of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) over the past decade, the indications for RTSA have expanded from cuff tear arthropathy to other pathologies such as proximal humeral fracture sequelae or eccentric glenohumeral osteoarthritis. Several factors are associated with the increase in use of RTSA including novel implant designs, preoperative planning tools, surgeons’ experience and first studies on long-term results, as well as an increasingly aging population. With this boom of RTSA, the number of failures and revision surgeries will also continue to rise just as RTSA-specific complications including acromial fractures, tuberosity mal-/non-union, glenoid bone loss or instability. As a surgeon in the field of shoulder arthroplasty, it is therefore of tremendous importance to understand the biomechanics and design of available implants and configurations, know the implant specific complications associated with RTSA, and have salvage options in the situation of RTSA failure included in one’s surgical repertory. The aim of this special issue is to review the literature on indication and implant specific outcome, discuss and provide evidence for the potential benefits of preoperative planning tools, to shed light on unsolved problems in RTSA, and to provide a prospect in the field of RTSA.
