Chapter

Abstract

Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is becoming increasingly common as both a primary reconstructive option and a salvage procedure. As indications expand and utilization increases, management of the failed RSA will become increasingly important. The purpose of this chapter is to review the common presentation of a failed RSA, the appropriate diagnostic evaluation, and operative strategies. This chapter will focus on the special considerations of revision RSA such as infection, instability, glenoid-sided failure, and humeral-sided failure.
