Treatment of glenohumeral osteoarthritis in young patients is challenging. Total shoulder arthroplasty reliably addresses pain and dysfunction but compromises glenoid bone stock. Various efforts have been made to avoid a prosthetic glenoid component or to prevent glenoid erosion after hemiarthroplasty. Capsular interposition, meniscal allograft, and more recently, GraftJacket (Wright Medical Technology Inc, Arlington, TN, USA), a human dermal collagen allograft, have been proposed for interposition arthroplasty in young patients with glenohumeral osteoarthritis.
