          Abstract

          In total shoulder arthroplasty, the humeral component, particularly the stem, can be involved in some of the complications and technical difficulties increase in posttraumatic arthritis with proximal humeral malunion. To decrease the intraoperative complications related to the stem, the TESS (Biomet Inc, Warsaw, IN) humeral implant, was designed in 2004 hypothesis that we can obtain a good fixation with a stemless prosthesis. This investigation reports the preliminary results of this prosthesis with more than 3 years of follow-up.
