Abstract
PURPOSE
We report here on a solution for the case of a 71 year old lady with cartilage destruction in the left shoulder and the loss of the rotator cuff secondary to post-septic arthritic sequelae. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After thorough laboratory, clinical and radiological investigation of the patient to rule out any foci of active infection, we contemplated performing reverse total shoulder arthroplasty as a primary procedure.
RESULTS
At 22 months follow up, the patient had an excellent result according to the UCLA and ASES scales.
CONCLUSION
Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty seems to be an efficient procedure to improve pain and function in the post-septic shoulder accompanying severe rotator cuff injury.
Key Words: Shoulder; Septic arthritis; Sequelae; Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty
