Reverse shoulder arthroplasty has demonstrated excellent results in the treatment of irreparable rotator cuff tears both with and without advanced glenohumeral arthritis for patients over the age of 70. The evolving success of this procedure has led to applications in proximal humerus fractures, revision shoulder arthroplasty, and treatment of patients younger than 70. Here, we discuss our preoperative evaluation including computed tomography and magnetic imaging scans and a thorough discussion of our preferred surgical technique is described. The surgical technique will utilize the Zimmer reverse shoulder arthroplasty system.
