Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) can decrease shoulder pain and improve function. However, results reportedly deteriorate as patients approach mid-term follow-up and little is known about how this impacts physical health-related quality of life (PHRQOL) and mental health-related quality of life (MHRQOL). The study hypothesis was that shoulder function, pain, and medication use for pain would influence PHRQOL and MHRQOL.
