Standard shoulder joint replacement with zoom in

The shoulder joint surfaces are formed by the humerus (arm bone) and the scapula. The surfaces are covered by cartilage. Certain conditions may indicate the need for a replacement for the shoulder joint such as: osteoarthritis, persistent shoulder pain, severe loss of joint function, osteonecrosis and fractures. A replacement joint can help alleviate pain and improve function. The replacement joint usually has two parts that replace the joint surfaces and is made of a combination of metal and plastic. Shown here is both the shoulder joint installed and a zoom-in highlighting the different components - artifical humoral head and artificial socket - and how the artificial socket is inserted into the scapula.
