Walch B2 glenoid - five years after ream and run

Here are the preop films of a 57 year old man showing a Walch B2 glenoid

Note the posterior displacement of the humeral head on the glenoid in the axillary view taken in the 'position of function' with the arm in 90 degrees of elevation in the plane of the scapula. At this time his Simple Shoulder Test showed 7/12 yes responses.

Here are his films one month after his ream and run, showing centering of the humeral head in the glenoid on both views. At this time his Simple Shoulder Test showed 12/12 yes responses.

Now five years later, the patient kindly sent me a few videos of his shoulder function.

Again, this is an extraordinary result in a person that put an extraordinary effort into his recovery.
