Learning Objectives

  • Accurately diagnose the underlying causes of reverse shoulder arthroplasty implant instability based on the patient history, physical examination findings, and appropriate imaging studies.
  • Develop and implement an effective treatment plan for a dislocated reverse shoulder arthroplasty implant, considering factors such as restoration of deltoid tension, revision of components, and removal of impinging tissue, with an understanding of when to perform prosthetic revision.
  • Recognize patient-related and implant-design risk factors for acromial fracture after reverse shoulder arthroplasty.
  • Apply appropriate surgical techniques for the management of acromial fractures after reverse shoulder arthroplasty.
  • Use the Vancouver classification system to categorize periprosthetic humerus fractures after reverse shoulder arthroplasty and to assess fracture stability.
  • Formulate comprehensive treatment strategies for periprosthetic humerus fractures, considering factors such as fracture location, implant type, stem length, bone stock, and patient-specific factors.
  • Effectively diagnose deep infections after reverse shoulder arthroplasty based on a complete patient workup, including erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein level, joint aspiration, and imaging studies, and select one- or two-stage revision based on the severity and characteristics of the infection.
  • Assess and manage glenoid baseplate loosening in patients who have undergone reverse shoulder arthroplasty.
  • Apply best practices for infection prevention in patients undergoing reverse shoulder arthroplasty based on current guidelines and consensus recommendations.
  • Critically evaluate various reverse shoulder arthroplasty implant designs and configurations.
