I have attached a link to a video showing early outcome with the Tornier Ascend prosthesis (1st x-ray on my initial post). Click on the link:

or click on:

and play the video at the bottom entitled "Early Favorable Outcome using the Tornier Ascend Anatomic Total Shoulder Prosthesis." The video shows actual bony ingrowth into the peg!! We are hopeful that this biologic advance will improve the durability of the glenoid component and result in a much lower incidence of loosening over the years.
