Suprascapular Neuropathy From Malpositioned Baseplate Screws in Primary Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty: Two Case Reports.


Kahan JB, Iannotti J, Donohue K
JBJS Case Connect. 2020 Oct 26; 10(4):e20.00096.
PMID: 33512938.


Two patients presented to different surgeons complaining of persistent shoulder pain after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. Workups for fracture, instability, and periprosthetic infection were negative. Advanced imaging, nerve conduction studies, and diagnostic injections localized symptoms to the suprascapular nerve. Revision arthroplasty with removal of the offending screws improved pain in both patients.
