While treatment can fast-track healing, frozen shoulder usually goes away with time—within two to four years—and sometimes pain can decrease in just a couple of days.
Researchers found treatment of patients with proximal humerus tumors using a reverse shoulder tumor prosthesis without the need for a proximal humeral allograft resulted in a stable shoulder joint and functionally satisfying results.
Between 2012 and 2014, researchers retrospectively evaluated information for 10 patients with malignant proximal humerus tumors who underwent arthroplasty with a reverse shoulder tumor prosthesis and had a mean follow-up of 18.2 months.
