Does forearm referencing using a retroversion guide achieve the targeted retroversion of the humeral component in reverse shoulder arthroplasty?

June 29, 2024

🔍 New Research Alert! Our recent study delves into the efficacy of forearm referencing with a retroversion guide for humeral component positioning in reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Accurate component alignment is crucial for optimal outcomes in shoulder replacement surgery. Our findings reveal that relying on extramedullary forearm referencing may not yield precise results, particularly impacting women. 🩺

👨‍🔬 Meet our First Author: Dr. Mohammad Jomaa, a clinical fellow at the Brisbane Shoulder Fellowship. Working closely with esteemed mentors, Dr. Jomaa spearheaded various clinical research projects at QUASR, QUT, focusing on enhancing patient care in shoulder surgery. Dr Jomaa has returned to Lebanon as the first subspecialty shoulder surgeon. We wish him well in his future illustrious career . Ashish and I look forward to our future collaborations with Dr Jomaa.🌟

🔬 Further exploration and development of advanced referencing systems are essential to enhance the accuracy and reliability of humeral component placement. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to strive for improved patient outcomes! 🌐 #Research #Orthopedics #ShoulderSurgery #MedicalInnovation
