Comparison between bipolar hemiarthroplasty
and total hip arthroplasty for unstable intertrochanteric fractures in elderly osteoporotic patients.
In addition, DJO Surgical released a number of conversion modules that will permit surgeons to easily transition from a primary total shoulder to a reverse shoulder arthroplasty, and from a reverse shoulder arthroplasty to a hemiarthroplasty
(a shoulder replacement in which the broken humeral head is replaced with an artificial joint and the fractured bone is reconstructed around the artificial joint).
Other topics are hemiarthroplasty
and total shoulder arthroplasty in osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis, proximal humerus fractures, post traumatic osteonecrosis and proximal humerus malunion, rotator cuff tear arthropathy, and complications.
The right side fracture was treated with a cementless hemiarthroplasty

Total shoulder arthroplasty was not an option because of the lack of glenoid bone to support it, but hemiarthroplasty
was successful for pain reduction (she rated her pain 0 out of 10 on a visual analogue scale following the surgery), and her function was improved.
