Detailed Description:
The purpose of the study is to determine the difference between pre-operative and post-operative levels of patient satisfaction, shoulder function, radiographic alignment, shoulder pain and patient satisfaction in patients receiving a Global® AP™ shoulder prosthesis for glenohumeral arthritis.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients selected for inclusion will present for primary shoulder arthroplasty with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis and will consent to participate.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Are under 18 years of age or over 70
  • Diagnosis of AVN, Inflammatory Arthritis, Fracture or Malunion.
  • Have a hemi-arthroplasty
  • Have destruction of the proximal humerus that precludes rigid fixation of the humeral component
  • Have arthritis with insufficient cuff tissue
  • Have had a failed rotator cuff surgery
  • Have loss of musculature, neuromuscular compromise or vascular deficiency in the affected limb rendering the procedure unjustified
  • Have evidence of active infection
  • Present with a condition of neuromuscular compromise of the shoulder (e.g., neuropathic joints or brachial plexus injury with a flail shoulder joint) - Have a known active metastatic or neoplastic disease
  • Are unwilling or unable to comply with a rehabilitation program or would fail to return for the postoperative follow-up visits prescribed by the protocol
  • Are skeletally immature.
  • Have a known allergic reaction to implant metals, polyethylene or a tissue reaction to corrosion or wear products
  • Have other conditions such as central nervous system disturbances, alcohol or drug addiction, etc. that may make effective evaluation of the joint replacement difficult or impossible
  • Are currently participating in another clinical study
  • Are taking > 10mg/day corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone) excluding inhalers, within 3 months prior to surgery
  • Are currently involved in any personal injury litigation, medical legal or worker's compensation claims.
