    Hi with regards to ovo shoulder what is eccentric vs concentric glenoids thanks

    • arthrosurface says:

      Hi Kevin, Concentric vs. eccentric refers to the type of damage there is on the glenoid. Basically, concentric means the humeral head is still in the center of the glenoid while eccentric means the damages has forced the humeral head backwards a bit. With shoulder OA, Cartilage collapses and the humeral head (ball) moves towards the socket (glenoid). Once the cartilage collapses, the head is still centered in the glenoid (earlier stages – less severe – concentric). As the arthritis progresses, the pressure of the joint can cause the bone in the back of the glenoid to erode forcing the humeral head to fall out of center and move back towards back of the shoulder joint. As it falls backwards and more bone erodes, you lose more motion and damage can increase (eccentric). Hope this helps!
