Abstract
PURPOSE
Surgical treatment of massive rotator cuff tear is challenging and there are various surgical options. The purpose of this article is to describe arthroplasty for the treatment of massive rotator cuff tear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed all publications that focused on and/or mentioned arthroplasty as a treatment option for massive rotator cuff tear.
RESULTS
Arthroplasty can be used as primary treatment and represents a salvage option for irreparable rotator cuff tear. Hemi-arthroplasty can provide satisfactory results by Neer's limited goals criteria in patients with intact coracoacromial arch. In addition, reverse total shoulder arthroplasty can be a salvage option for pain relief and restoration of active flexion in elderly patients with pseudoparalysis.
CONCLUSION
In patients with massive rotator cuff tear, proper selection of arthroplasty can provide pain relief and restoration of functional range of motion in shoulder joints.
Key Words: Shoulder; Massive rotator cuff tear; Arthroplasty
