Complications of Shoulder Arthroplasty

We retrospectively reviewed all articles published from 2006 to 2015 that had been found in searches of the MEDLINE, Embase, and Ovid databases and had made specific references to "shoulder," "arthroplasty," and "replacement." A complication was defined as an event that resulted in an adverse outcome for the patient, irrespective of surgical revision. These events were totaled and collated according to type of complication.
