Both hemiarthroplasty and total shoulder arthroplasty offered lasting pain relief, and range of motion was improved at the long-term follow-up; however, unsatisfactory Neer ratings were high, according to study results.

Seventy-eight Neer hemiarthroplasties (HAs) and 36 Neer total shoulder arthroplasties (TSAs) were performed by a single surgeon between Jan. 1, 1976, and Dec. 31, 1985, in patients 50 years of age or younger (mean age: 40 years). Of these procedures, 56 HAs and 19 TSAs had minimum 20-year follow-up or a follow-up until reoperation and were analyzed for clinical, radiographic and survivorship outcomes.
