Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for failed open reduction and internal fixation of fractures of the proximal humerus


Grubhofer, Florian; Wieser, Karl; Meyer, D C; Catanzaro, Sabrina; Schürholz, K; Gerber, Christian (2017). Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for failed open reduction and internal fixation of fractures of the proximal humerus. Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, 26(1):92-100.

Abstract

Fifty-four shoulders of 53 patients with a subjectively unacceptable outcome after ORIF of a complex fracture of the proximal humerus were revised with RTSA. At a minimum follow-up of 2 years (mean follow-up, 46 months; range, 24-108 months), 44 shoulders were clinically and radiographically reviewed for the purpose of this study. Six patients had been lost to follow-up, and 4 patients (7%) were excluded from functional analysis because of revision surgeries.
