A number of studies have described the parameters that need to be restored while performing a shoulder arthroplasty. Results depend on proper implant selection, positioning, and correct restoration of the glenohumeral parameters. Errors in treating the glenoid pathology, restoring the normal glenohumeral anatomy, and failure in achieving adequate soft-tissue balance are detrimental to the outcome. The present study reviews the normal glenohumeral parameters that need to be restored in an anatomical total shoulder arthroplasty and hemiarthroplasty. Furthermore, avoidable surgical errors while performing an anatomical shoulder arthroplasty are discussed. Copyright © 2017 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
