A 64-year-old patient suffered from severe complications related to total shoulder arthroplasty performed several years ago. His diagnosis claimed a defect with abnormal ossification surrounding the glenoid. Due to the complexity and unusual size of this particular defect, implementing a patient-specific 3D-Printed Glenius implant seemed to offer the best solution. Prof. Dr. Stefaan Nijs (Belgium) proceeded with a two-stage revision procedure based on detailed 3D preoperative planning.
A 60 year old lady was suffering from shoulder pain and limited range of motion. Analysis of the medical images indicated a devastating shoulder arthrosis with severe medialization and erosion of the glenoid. Due to a complete loss of the glenoid vault, implantation of a classic pegged baseplate for reverse total shoulder was not an option. In addition, interposition of a massive bone graft would have little chance for ingrowth and survival, hence little chance to offer sufficient stability.
