Prostheses, Joint, Shoulder, Total

Definition : Implantable prostheses designed for total replacement of the shoulder joint. These prostheses typically consist of a combination of a humeral component (consisting of a long stem that is anchored in the hollow center of the humerus at one end and a cup that is attached to the other end forming the ball of the articulation) and a glenoid component (consisting of a metal tray with a short stem that is anchored directly to the scapula and a plastic cup that replaces the glenoid cavity of the shoulder blade at the articulation point). Made of a combination of metal, ceramics, and/or polymeric materials with different shapes and technologies, the prostheses may be intended for use with or without bone cement. Total shoulder joint prostheses are used in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis or, less frequently, after trauma (e.g., fracture).

Exactech Inc

Exactech began as a dream shared by orthopaedic surgeon Bill Petty, his wife Betty, and biomedical engineer Gary Miller, PhD. Drs. Miller and Petty had worked with several orthopaedic companies and thought they saw some things the industry could do differently, and better. They wanted to make a difference in the quality of care provided to patients suffering from joint diseases like arthritis. In 1985, the Pettys and Dr. Miller made the first step toward realizing their vision by incorporating Exactech on November 8. Since that time, Exactech has leveraged its founding principles to become one of the world's fastest-growing orthopaedic companies.
