The complexity of reverse shoulder arthroplasty has increased as implant options and indications have expanded. Understanding how and when to use a reverse shoulder arthroplasty in simple and complex cases can be challenging. The Latarjet procedure has gained wider acceptance as a preferred stabilization surgery; however, complications exist and technical pearls to optimize outcomes and minimize complications are important.

This comprehensive, hands-on skills course provides answers to these questions through a dynamic mix of hands-on practice in the cadaver lab, faculty surgical demonstrations, informative lectures, panel discussions, case debates, and one-on-one time with nationally and internationally-recognized faculty.

Course highlights include:
• The indications and potential benefits of Latarjet vs. open soft tissue stabilization procedures
• Technical pearls for getting the Latarjet “just right”
• The role of tendon transfers with reverse shoulder arthroplasty
• The expanding indications for reverse shoulder arthroplasty including revision surgeries with technical surgical pearls
• Point-counterpoint presentations and debates including:
– Open Bankart with Capsular Shift vs. Latarjet
– Medial vs. lateral glenosphere offset reverse system
