The ream and run for a B2 glenoid at 7 years after surgery

A 60 year old avid tennis player and active athlete presented with a painful left shoulder and these x-rays

His axillary 'truth' view showed glenoid retroversion biconcavity and posterior humeral decentering.

He elected a ream and run procedure in view of his desired high activity level.

His 7 year followup radiographs are shown here

Note that the axillary view shows centering of the prosthetic humeral head in the reamed glenoid socket.

Here is his shoulder motion at 7 years after surgery.
