For patients who have no rotator cuff and advanced arthritis, the Reverse Shoulder Replacement has offered new treatment options. Computer 3D planning and Patient Specific Instrumentation has been the latest innovation.
This 81 year old lady underwent a CT scan with 3D planning and computer navigation prior to surgery. This allows for a detailed understanding of the glenoid wear pattern.
A 3D printed patient specific guide is then used to implant the shoulder replacement with a high level of accuracy. In this case the glenoid bone loss (due to wear) was replaced with a custom bone graft using her own humeral head. She completed her rehabilitation using the JPL method and would like her other side done soon.
