About these proceedings


Success in shoulder arthroplasty surgery is not necessarily dependent only on the principle of construction of a prosthetic device nor the way this device is implanted or fixed to the bony interface, but more so by the understanding and handling of the soft tissues surrounding the articulation. Based on their tremendous experience in the basic anatomy and its relation to function the editors of this book were able to develop a prosthetic device which could take into account individual anatomical variation in each patient, making successful outcome of surgery much more predictable. This must-read for any shoulder surgeon not only informs the reader of the current state of the art but also enlightens him with an understanding of what advancements can be achieved with innovative thinking in the field of orthopaedic surgery.
