In January 1999 the FDA approved the Bigliani/Flatow Shoulder System, a device instrumentation system for the use in shoulder arthroplasty. The aims of the study are to establish safety, effectiveness, and value of the prosthetic system, and to collect information from expert shoulder surgeons as to features of the implants, instruments, and techniques which may be further improved. Additionally, we wish to capture long-term follow-up data from patients undergoing total shoulder arthroplasty, and to assess patient-based outcome, functional status, and quality of life.
