Abstract

Abstract: The purpose of this retrospective case report is to illustrate a successful recovery and return to work, recreational activities and motorsports following shoulder replacement with a pegged glenoid and a stemless humeral implant with traditional therapy interventions and a highly compliant patient. Method: This report is a retrospective single case-study design. Discussion: Total shoulder arthroplasty utilizing a pegged, otherwise known as short-stemmed implant, should be considered for utilization in those individuals requiring a high level of post-operative function. Conclusion: There is little research on short-stemmed implants utilized in shoulder arthroplasty or their utilization in motorsport, and shooting sport athletes thus additional research in these areas should be considered. It is ultimately up to the patient and surgeon to establish conservative parameters for participation in recreational activities post-surgery in the interest of preserving the longevity of the shoulder implant.
