A Retrospective Review of FloSeal Use in Total Shoulder Arthroplasty

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.

The proposed study aims to objectively assess 2-year clinical and radiographic results for the rate of glenoid component loosening in total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). This retrospective radiographic review will provide evidence for equivalence or superiority in curtailing loosening, a known complication in arthroplasty, when a hemostatic agent is utilized in conjunction with cement at the glenoid.

Total Shoulder Arthroplasty
Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: A Retrospective Review of FloSeal Use in Total Shoulder Arthroplasty

Further study details as provided by Western Orthopaedics Research and Education Foundation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Radiographic Loosening [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Radiographic loosening is defined by the presence of radiolucent lines at the bone-cement interface at 2 years. Lines are measured as being either not-present, less than 2mm or greater than/equal to 2mm, in addition to implant seating and the radiodensity between the flanges of the central peg.

Estimated Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: November 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 90 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
