Soft tissue interposition arthroplasty for glenohumeral arthritis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Hemiarthroplasty with soft tissue interpositon is an attractive alternative to traditional polyethylene glenoid resurfacing in young, active patients with glenohumeral arthritis. Initial results support this approach for surgical management in such patients. Numerous soft tissue sources are used in resurfacing, each with its pros and cons. One promising soft tissue source is allograft lateral meniscus. The meniscus provides ideal glenoid coverage and durability.
