The biconcave glenoid in patients with primary glenohumeral osteoarthritis represents a surgical challenge because of the associated static posterior instability of the humeral head and secondary posterior glenoid erosion. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic results of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for the treatment of primary osteoarthritis in patients with a biconcave glenoid without rotator cuff insufficiency.
