What is a Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder?

The Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder is a shoulder replacement device that is surgically implanted to help restore arm movement. This device is beneficial for patients with rotator cuff tears who have developed a severe type of shoulder arthritis known as arthropathy and previously failed shoulder joint replacement.

The number of patients who suffered from fractures or require revision surgery shortly after being implanted with the reverse shoulder device rose at an alarming rate over the last few years.

According to court documents, the manufacturer knew about this risk, but failed to disclose this information to the public.
