Humeral Head Resurfacing in the Rheumatoid Shoulder

Rydholm, Urban LU (2003) In Techniques in Orthopaedics 18(3). p.71-267
Abstract
Summary: The rheumatoid shoulder and elbow should be assessed in an early stage concerning the possibility of surgical intervention. The cause of the shoulder pain can be localized elsewhere in the shoulder girdle or in the neck. In patients with glenohumeral pain, resurfacing of the humeral head with a cup seems to be a good alternative to conventional stemmed prostheses. It diminishes the risk of peroperative complications involving the humeral shaft and late periprosthetic fractures. Revision or arthrodesis can be undertaken easily because the bone stock has been maintained with no loss of length. The main advantages of humeral head resurfacing are preservation of bone and the relatively simple surgical technique.
