Hemiarthroplasty, TSA offer lasting pain relief, improved range of motion

July 7, 2015

Both hemiarthroplasty and total shoulder arthroplasty offered lasting pain relief, and range of motion was improved at the long-term follow-up; however, unsatisfactory Neer ratings were high, according to study results.

Seventy-eight Neer hemiarthroplasties (HAs) and 36 Neer total shoulder arthroplasties (TSAs) were performed by a single surgeon between Jan. 1, 1976, and Dec. 31, 1985, in patients 50 years of age or younger (mean age: 40 years). Of these procedures, 56 HAs and 19 TSAs had minimum 20-year follow-up or a follow-up until reoperation and were analyzed for clinical, radiographic and survivorship outcomes.
