About this study

The primary objective of this study is to collect and evaluate long-term clinical and radiographic outcomes data to better understand the safety and performance of shoulder arthroplasty over time.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate.
