Stemless humeral components in total shoulder arthroplasty - deja vu

Stemless humeral component in total shoulder arthroplasty: 2-year age-related clinical outcomes

These authors reviewed the results of 157 patients having stemless humeral components in total shoulder arthroplasty. 

They found that older patients had somewhat greater improvements in strength,  internal-rotation range of motion and clinical outcomes.

Comment: This article seems to report on the same 157 patients in the multi center study by 16 surgeons at 14 sites that were recently reported in another journal (see this link).
