Total shoulder replacement, also known as total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA)
Shoulder replacement surgery is an option for treatment of severe arthritis of the shoulder joint. Arthritis is a condition that affects the cartilage of the joints. As the cartilage lining wears away, the protective lining between the bones is lost. When this happens, painful bone-on-bone arthritis develops. Severe shoulder arthritis is quite painful, and can cause restriction of motion.
The primary goal of shoulder replacement surgery is pain relief, with a secondary benefit of restoring motion, strength, and function.
Types of shoulder implants
The two artificial components that can be implanted in the shoulder during shoulder joint replacement surgery are:
The humeral component. This part replaces the head of the humerus. It is usually made of cobalt or chromium-based alloys and has a rounded ball attached to a stem that can be inserted into the bone.
The glenoid component. This component replaces the glenoid cavity. It is made of very high-density polyethelene.
Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery
The Reverse Shoulder Prosthesis replaces the damaged joint. The metal-and-polyethylene implant mimics the anatomy of the natural shoulder, but provides a deeper socket to stabilize the joint. The implant is designed to compensate for the damaged rotator cuff and help reduce the painful symptoms of arthritis.
