Classification of glenohumeral arthritis

Reliability of radiologic glenohumeral osteoarthritis classifications.

This article sought to determine the intraobserver and interobserver reliability of classification systems for glenohumeral osteoarthritis. They found that the classification systems according to Weinstein and Guyette and the modifications of the Samilson-Prieto classification according to Allain and Gerber showed a comparable reliability with the commonly used glenohumeral osteoarthritis grading systems according to Samilson-Prieto and Kellgren-Lawrence.

Unfortunately, the authors apparently did not obtain standardized axillary views and, thus, were unable to assess the clinically important characteristics of glenoid version, glenoid type, and position of glenohumeral contact.
