- Total Shoulder Arthroplasty with Exactech GPS. English subtitles.
Rémi Charvet, MD.
Presentation of GPS from BlueOrtho Exactech: the only system capable of
planification and navigation: it delivers an accuracy of two millimeters
and one degree to improve the position of the glenoid implant (standard
and augmented baseplates).
Particularly in complex cases with severe retroversion, severe glenoid
wear or a very narrow glenoid vault, navigation can ensure optimal
placement and fixation of the implant to reduce the risk of
complications. Some cases, even simple at fist glance, have very little
margin for error and given the demands that today's patients place on
their implants, it is up to surgeons to maximize outcomes and durability
using modern navigation technology. Furthermore it’s a dynamic system
which allows appropriate gestures, for example, ream the glenoid step by
step in different axis until the perfect position.
