Abstract

Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) has continuously evolved into an alternative to total shoulder arthroplasty for various shoulder disorders that cannot be managed with the traditional arthroscopic procedure. The indications have expanded and currently it is being used for multiple diagnoses. It has been developed continuously since original Grammont design, but still there is on debate over which model to choose and which is better.
