Return to play after TSA linked to sports participation in 5-year preoperative period

March 31, 2015

Return to play in patients who underwent total shoulder arthroplasty was found to be associated with the level of sports participation in the 5-year period leading up to surgery, according to recently published study data.

Researchers evaluated 170 total shoulder arthroplasties (TSAs) in 154 patients who underwent TSA for primary glenohumeral arthritis between May 1997 and July 2007. Patients were divided into two cohorts based on whether they had (group 1) or had not (group 2) participated in sports within a 5-year span before surgery. Through the use of patient surveys, the primary outcomes evaluated were return to play (RTP) and return to work for patients not retired at a mean follow-up of 6.2 years.
