The CTA arthroplasty - how it can be done

We are commonly asked about the technique of the CTA (cuff tear arthropathy) shoulder arthroplasty. Here we provide a few short youtubes describing the approach we commonly use for patients having pain and loss of function due to the combination of arthritis of the shoulder and a massive rotator cuff defect, who also have the retained ability to actively elevate the arm.

To see our new series of youtube videos on important shoulder surgeries and how they are done, click here.

Be sure to visit "Ream and Run - the state of the art"  regarding this radically conservative approach to shoulder arthritis at this link and this link. Also see the essentials of the ream and run.
