OBJECTIVE: To estimate the lifetime risk of primary shoulder arthroplasty in Australia and to examine changes over time. METHODS: For this retrospective population-level analysis, de-identified individual-level data on all primary partial shoulder arthroplasty (PSA) and total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) procedures performed in Australia from 2008 to 2017 (n = 38,868) were obtained from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry.

Separate calculations were undertaken by ..View full abstract
