Overall study design:

This study is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter postmarket clinical follow-up study with two study arms using the two shoulder prosthesis PROMOS™ STANDARD (group A) and PROMOS REVERSE™ (group B). The study will collect efficacy and safety data over 10 years.

Primary or Secondary Omarthrosis of the Shoulder Joint

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Patient Benefit From the New Modular Shoulder Prosthesis PROMOS - a Multicentre Cohort Study

Further study details as provided by Smith & Nephew, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary outcome measures: Patient benefit will be measured with the SPADI and Constant Murley score at the joint level, with the QuickDASH for the upper extremity and the SF-36 mental score as a generic tool. [ Time Frame: Preop / 6M / 1Y / 2Y / 5Y / 10Y ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Active and passive ROM and strength / Rate of implant related complications / Rate of implant related findings like radiological loosening of the glenoid / Prosthesis survival at common time points, e.g. 5 and 10 years [ Time Frame: Preop / 6M / 1Y / 2Y / 5Y / 10Y ]

Estimated Enrollment: 240
Study Start Date: June 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:

Primary objective of the study:

The primary objective is to quantify patient benefit after primary total shoulder arthroplasty with the modular PROMOS™ shoulder system in a multicenter cohort study (real world approach). Patient benefit will be quantified using objective and validated subjective measures of function, activities of daily living (ADL) and quality of life (QoL).

Secondary objectives:

  • Rate of implant related findings like radiological loosening of the glenoid and complications like intraoperative stem fissures
  • Prosthesis survival at common time points, e.g. 5 and 10 years
