Ream and run for B2 glenoid – beach smashball at 13 weeks
A man in his late 40s had a ream and run for the bad arthritic triad (BAT) which developed after a previous repair for anterior instability ( = capsulorrhaphy arthropathy). His preoperative films showed complete loss of the joint space and the arthritic triad: a biconcave glenoid, glenoid retroversion and posterior subluxation of the humeral head on the face of the glenoid.
Thirteen weeks ago, he had a ream and run with a 56 21 anteriorly eccentric head and a rotator interval plication.
His postoperative films show centering of the humeral head on the glenoid.
He recently send a video of his playing smashball on the beach 13 weeks after surgery – possibly a new way to rehabilitate a shoulder.
