Effect of Renal Illness on the Results of Glen humeral Osteoarthritis Elective Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Author(s): Mathew Nicolson

Primary glenohumeral osteoarthritis has been linked to renal disease, including chronic renal disease and end-stage renal disease. The effects of renal illness on recovery from shoulder arthroplasty, however, are little understood. Consequently, the goal of this study was to assess how renal illness affected the results of shoulder arthroplasty for glenohumeral osteoarthritis.
