Featured Surgery on ICJR.net: Primary Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty with Patient-specific Instrumentation

 

I want to alert you to a new featured surgery on ICJR.net: Jonathan C. Levy, MD, demonstrates the use of the Match Point System™ from DJO Surgical in a reverse shoulder arthroplasty performed in a 78-year-old female patient with rotator cuff tear arthropathy.

 

Because the massive tear cannot be repaired, Dr. Levy has opted for a reverse shoulder arthroplasty. He used the Match Point System preoperatively to plan the operation and to visualize - through CT scans and a 3D printout - how he is going to place the glenoid component.

 

 

 

 

I hope you find viewing this procedure helpful in your practice.

 

Regards,
