Course Description

CEU Course Description

Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) is a useful treatment option for patients with irreparable massive rotator cuff tears and cuff tear arthropathy (CTA).  The goal of this CEU course is to appraise the correlation between preoperative deltoid muscle volume and postoperative practical consequences subsequent to RTSA by panoptically analyzing the demographic, clinical, and radiological factors involving known prognostic factors and preoperative deltoid volume.

CEU Course Objectives

1.  Conclude the goal of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

2.  Identify which muscle becomes the primary motor muscle for flexion and abduction following RTSA.

3.  List three characteristics that are associated with postoperative practical consequences.

4.  Name four factors that have been considered essential for clinical consequences subsequent to RTSA.

5.  Provide the single independent prognostic factor for the practical consequences of RTSA.
