PMID: 33958493.


Glenohumeral joint arthrodesis has become a rare entity due to the introduction of shoulder arthroplasty. It is an excellent salvage procedure for patients with severe shoulder dysfunction, with limited treatment options, indicated for brachial plexus injury, tumour resection, chronic infection, failed prosthetic arthroplasty, or pseudoparalysis of the shoulder due to combined rotator cuff and deltoid deficiency. Shoulder arthrodesis relieves the patient of pain and gives a decent amount of function. The aim of this study was to examine the mid-term outcomes of glenohumeral arthrodesis with 2 pelvic recon plates.
