In the last years life duration of shoulder prostheses could be prolonged
through improvement of prosthesis quality, instrumentation
and surgical techniques. After shoulder total arthroplasty, the
patients show signifi cant reduction of pain and good functional
mid and long term results. Indication to shoulder arthroplasty can
be made by even younger and sportive active patients. Many sport
activities remain possible after implantation of a shoulder prosthesis.
A systematic rehabilitation is mandatory to yield optimal
functional results. Intensity of sports activities should remain in
relation with the preoperative status. Activities with total contact
and high impaction strength should be avoided to extend the duration
of life of the prosthesis.
