Osteoporosis is a widespread and growing medical condition, with significant orthopaedic implications. However, the effect of osteoporosis on outcomes after total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) is not well understood. The goal of the present study was to characterize the incidence of osteoporosis in patients undergoing shoulder arthroplasty and to examine whether patients with osteoporosis undergoing anatomic and reverse TSA are at an increased risk of prosthetic-related complications.
To create an opportunity for JAAOS readers to meet the authors of “Osteoporosis and Implant-Related Complications After Anatomic and Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty,” published in the February 1, 2020 issue of JAAOS.
