Materialise Glenius

Personalized glenoid implants

In a shoulder arthroplasty with a severe glenoid defect, the remaining bone stock is often insufficient to fixate standard baseplates, and the defect can be too large or oblique for a bone graft.  

Don't compromise the outcome of complex shoulder cases. Enhance predictability with personalized Glenius implants.

Seeing the patient three weeks after surgery with no pain and already substantial active ROM made my day. I am so happy having the Glenius component as a treatment option in those cases requiring reversed shoulder arthroplasty with severe bone loss of the glenoid.
