In the aforementioned cadaveric study, Middernarcht noted that due to the infraglenoid tubercle, glenosphere overhang could not always be achieved: 75% of 36 mm glenospheres (150 scapulae) and 27% of 42 mm glenospheres (55 scapulae) when assembled to the glenoid baseplate as inferiorly as possible had no overhang.
