This study states that Total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) with second-generation Trabecular Metal™ implants (Zimmer, Warsaw, IN, USA) has shown good short-term outcomes. Differences in outcomes between cemented and uncemented fixation are unknown. This study compared the clinical, radiographic, and patient-rated outcomes of TSA with cemented vs. uncemented TM glenoids at minimum 5-year follow-up.

Patients who underwent anatomic TSA with second-generation TM glenoid components for primary osteoarthritis were identified for minimum 5-year follow-up. The patients were divided into 2 groups: cemented and uncemented glenoid fixation. Outcome measures included implant survival, patient-rated outcome scores (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System [PROMIS] and American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons scores), shoulder range of motion, and radiographic analysis. Findings were compared between groups.

Hence we conclude that The study included 55 shoulders: 27 in the cemented group (21 with full radiographic follow-up) and 28 in the uncemented group (22 with full radiographic follow-up).
