A reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) is strongly suggested for patients who suffer from rotator cuff (RTC) arthropathy, where RTC deficiency causes abnormal loading leading to articular cartilage damage. Studies show that 47% of RTSA patients have rotator cuff arthropathy and 27% have some form of osteoarthritis (OA) .
