Jain NB, Yamaguchi K. The contribution of reverse shoulder arthroplasty to utilization of primary shoulder arthroplasty. Journal of shoulder and elbow surgery / American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons ... [et al.]. 2014 Dec;23(23). 1905-12. PMID: 25304043 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC4252758 NIHMSID: NIHMS613750.
We assessed the contribution of reverse shoulder arthroplasty to overall utilization of primary shoulder arthroplasty and present age- and sex-stratified national rates of shoulder arthroplasty. We also assessed contemporary complication rates, mortality rates, and indications for shoulder arthroplasty, as well as estimates and indications for revision arthroplasty.
