Reverse shoulder prosthesis- An useful option for large rotator cuff tears

Elderly people with large rotator cuff tears and unwilling to compromise on their activity levels now stand to benefit from a novel design of Shoulder replacement. This prosthesis substitutes the function of the damaged rotator cuff. The ball of the artifical joint is actually implanted into the original socket of the glenoid and the socket is recreated in the ball shaped end of the arm bone( Humerus)
