Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis: Biological Interposition
Many patients facing surgery for shoulder osteoarthritis are non-ideal candidates for endoprosthetic arthroplasty procedures such as hemiarthroplasty and total shoulder arthroplasty because of young age or the desire to return to high-level activities. Joint-preserving surgical options, particularly those performed arthroscopically, are increasingly available to these patients. Arthroscopic glenoid resurfacing (AGR), now performed as a biologic interposition arthroplasty using acellular dermal allograft, reliably improves pain and function for those patients with severe clinical or radiographic disease. In this chapter, a detailed surgical technique for AGR is presented.
