For the small defect, the 3 mm step posterior augment glenoid conserves 25% more cancellous bone, 18% more cortical bone, and 23% more bone overall than that using eccentric reaming. For the medium defect, the 5 mm step posterior augment glenoid removes 4% more cancellous bone, conserves 7% more cortical bone, and removes 2% more bone overall than that using eccentric reaming.
Both eccentric reaming and each design of posterior augmented glenoids successfully recentered the humeral head and eliminated subscapularis wrapping around the anterior glenoid rim in each size defect.
A superior glenoid defect was created and was corrected with either eccentric reaming with implantation of a standard glenoid baseplate or off-axis reaming with implantation of a superior augment glenoid baseplate.
While new techniques and implants are being developed, it appears that augmented glenoid baseplates may be a viable alternative to asymmetric reaming, bone grafting, or combined asymmetric reaming and bone grafting.
