The pioneering work of Paul Grammont, in 1985, and the development of the Delta prosthesis have been fundamental to all subsequent reverse shoulder arthroplasty systems. Reverse shoulder arthroplasty has emerged as the standard treatment for patients with rotator cuff tear arthropathy, and its use is expanding to include other difficult shoulder problems. However, its application must be tempered by appropriate patient and implant selection in order to minimize the potential for associated complications. In the current year (2017), more than 30 models of commercial designs are presently available on the market. This chapter describes all the different design parameters that exist so far and their alterations according to the first Delta prosthesis. Prosthetic differences are found for the baseplate, glenosphere, polyethylene, and humeral components. These prosthetic differences, manufactured in order to limit the rate of all complications reported in early designs, need to be carefully analyzed knowing that a gain in one mechanical parameter can balance the loss of another. Patient-specific implants based on accurate preoperative morphological measurements may help in the future.
