Dr. Lederman’s Findings Featured in “Orthopedics Today”

TOCA’s Dr. Evan Lederman, MD, regularly educates, lectures, and participates in groundbreaking research to further the field of orthopedics. His expertise in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee has earned him the honor of being one of only two Arizona surgeons to be accepted into the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) as an associate member.

Orthopedics Today recently highlighted the results of one of Dr. Lederman’s studies comparing functional outcome scores and revision rates between different surgical techniques in total shoulder arthroplasty. Dr. Lederman presented the results of the study at the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Annual Meeting, which was held in Chicago this past fall.

Title: Short-term clinical outcome of an anatomic short-stem humeral component in total shoulder arthroplasty

Background

Short-stem press-fit humeral components have recently been developed in an effort to preserve bone in total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA), but few studies have reported outcomes of these devices. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the short-term clinical outcomes of an anatomic short-stem humeral component in TSA. We hypothesized that the implant would lead to significant functional improvement with low rates of radiographic loosening.

Title: Glenohumeral osteoarthritis in young patients: Stemless total shoulder arthroplasty trumps resurfacing arthroplasty—Opposes

Samuel Harmsen MD and Evan S Lederman MD

Abstract

When considering shoulder arthroplasty in a younger patient the surgeon can choose between stemmed, stemless or resurfacing implants for humeral reconstruction. Resurfacing arthroplasty can reproduce humeral anatomy independent of the humeral shaft, minimize bone resection and offer potential easier revision surgery. The resurfacing implant has been in use for over 30 years and has favorable long-term outcome.
