Though the literature contains many computational models studying RSA, very few utilize finite element analysis to study stresses in the implant and the surrounding bone. The introductions section shows that many parameters (center of rotation lateralization, center of rotation superior or inferior position, tilt of the cut glenoid surface, glenosphere shape design, glenosphere size, humeral design, notch severity, etc.) have been studied independently utilizing many different methods (finite element modeling and non-FE computational modeling). However, the introduction section also detailed the current limitations in modern modeling as well as many examples of the heights to which finite element modeling can ...
