Impaction autografting proved to be secure, bone-preserving method for shoulder arthroplasty

April 24, 2017

Use of impaction autografting for humeral component fixation in anatomic shoulder arthroplasty proved to be a secure, durable and bone-preserving option, according to results.

To assess subsidence, researchers evaluated the initial postoperative radiographs and minimum 2-year follow-up radiographs of 286 primary anatomic shoulder arthroplasties (65% of patients were male). During the study, patients either received the monoblock Humeral Replacement Prosthesis with a chrome cobalt stem, which was used from 1995 to 2003, or the modular Global Advantage prosthesis with a geometrically similar titanium stem, which was used from 1995 to 2012, (both from DePuy Synthes).
