Comprehensive Arthroscopic Management of Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis (CAM Procedure)
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the glenohumeral joint is a frequent and disabling cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction. Joint space narrowing, stiffness, and osteophyte formation are associated with symptomatic OA. When non-operative options have failed, young, active patients may wish to delay arthroplasty. In such patients, the comprehensive arthroscopic management (CAM) procedure may be indicated, and this procedure includes several distinct steps aimed at improving pain and function.
