Study results indicate that younger, active adults who underwent anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty with the Arthrosurface OVO® with Inlay Glenoid Shoulder Arthroplasty System experienced excellent range of motion, improved clinical outcomes, no reoperations or radiographic loosening and a high rate of return to work and sports at follow-up.
The study included a retrospective review of patients with primary or post-traumatic glenohumeral osteoarthritis, with arthroplasty performed in 27 shoulders in 24 patients.
At an average of just over 40 months, patients showed significant progress with outcome measures, active forward flexion and external rotation. Eighty-five percent of patients reported overall physical fitness as the same as or better than levels before surgery.
The results confirm earlier studies demonstrating excellent patient outcomes and increased range of motion despite the complexity of the anatomy.
