    Neurovascular injury occurs in up to 4% of patients undergoing total shoulder arthroplasty, and, fortunately, it resolves spontaneously in most cases. In a few cases, though, a nerve is permanently damaged.

    Tom R. Norris, MD, from California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, addressed this issue at ICJR’s 5th Annual Shoulder Course, offering advice on how to prevent and manage neurovascular injuries.

    We asked him to share the key points from his presentation. Click the image above to hear his comments.
