Resection arthroplasty

Resection arthroplasty for failed shoulder arthroplasty

The authors of this paper found 26 patients having had resection arthroplasty for failure of a primary arthroplasty. These patients demonstrated significant improvement in their pain score but not their function. What we found most interesting about this paper was that all but four of these resections were performed for intractable infection.
Patients having resection for reverse total shoulders had poorer function than those having resection for failed total shoulders or hemiarthroplasties.
