Referral for shoulder joint replacement in patients with glenohumeral arthrosis may be delayed in the primary sector. When non-surgical first-line treatment has little effect on pain and quality of life, patients should be referred for orthopaedic specialist assessment. New trends regarding shoulder prosthesis are under way as indicated by data from the Danish Shoulder Alloplasty Registry from the latest decade with an increase in number and quality. Changed demographic composition in favour of the elderly makes focus on the importance of shoulder prosthesis regarding research and treatment algorithm...

Total joint replacements (TJR) are costly procedures required to relieve pain and restore function in patients suffering from end-stage arthritis. Despite great progress in the development and durability of TJRs, the generation of prosthesis-associated wear particles over time leads to an inflammatory cascade which culminates in periprosthetic osteolysis. Studies suggest that wear particles drive the polarization/differentiation of immature macrophages towards a pro-inflammatory M1 phenotype rather than an anti-inflammatory M2 phenotype associated with normal bone and wound healing...
