Hakan Gurbuz, Hooman Sekhavat, Halim Demiral


Ten patients were treated by partial shoulder prosthesis and two patient were treated by total shoulder prosthesis between March 1993 and Nowember 1996 at our Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. All of the partial shoulder prosthesis were applied for three or four-part fractures of the proximal humerus. Also total shoulder prosthesis were applied on two patients because of old anatomical neck fractures at the first patient and old unreduced shoulder dilocations at the second. Four of them were female and others were male. The mean age was 41 years old. The average follow-up period was 19 months. Cofield shoulder scores were used for evaluation of the patients. Four patient were classified as excellent, six patient good, and two patients poor. In this study, we concluded that arthroplasty of shoulder may be an useful method for three or four part fractures of the proxumal humerus, old anatomical nek fractures and old unreduced dislocation of the sholder.
