Treatment of severe cuff tear arthropathy with the humeral head resurfacing arthroplasty: two-year minimum follow-up
Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, 06/29/2012
Pape G et al. – For selected patients with cuff tear arthropathy, resurfacing arthroplasty of the humeral head provides satisfactory medium–term outcomes. The teres minor muscle is necessary for maintaining or establishing external rotation. In patients with massive limitation of motion and total absence of the subscapularis tendon, the implantation of a humeral surface replacement should be seriously considered.
