Clinical Outcomes in Shoulder Hemi-arthroplasty Using a PyC Spherical Interpositional Implant

The INSPYRE implant is a new range of shoulder hemi-arthroplasty device. It consists of a Pyrocarbon spherical interpositional implant and is indicated in primary surgery to relieve severe pain or significant disability caused by degenerative pathologies. The rotator cuff must be functional.

The aim of this study is to prospectively collect data from consecutive series to implement a Post Marketing Surveillance plan.
