What is the Reverse Shoulder Prosthesis?
Mulieri  reviewed 58 patients (60 shoulders) at a mean of fifty-two months following reverse shoulder arthroplasty for massive rotator cuff tears. 34 shoulders had no previous surgery and 26 patients had a failed previous rotator cuff repair. All patients had improved forward flexion and abduction. Although the external rotation was improved post-operatively this was not statistically significant in both groups (Table ). In addition a statistically significant improvement in the average American shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Score (ASES) from 33.3 to 75.4, visual analogues score for pain from 6.3 to 1.9 and the visual analogue score for function from 3.2 to 7.1 were noted. 95% of the patients were satisfied with the outcome, and the implant survival rate was 91%.

Reporting on the short term outcomes on the use of reverse shoulder arthroplasty for cuff tear arthropathy in 57 patients, Seebauer  noted a 98% satisfaction rate of the patients. All patients reported almost complete freedom from pain and normal functional outcomes with only slight limitation of internal rotation. A good improvement in function and power can be expected if the deltoid has not been damaged.
