Anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) has been shown to be a reliable surgery for pain relief, improvement of shoulder function, and quality of life. The presence of biconcave glenoid deformity poses a significant reconstructive challenge for a shoulder surgeon as this deformity has been associated with poorer clinical outcomes and a higher rate of complications. Reconstructive options are largely dictated by the severity of the glenoid deformity and the degree of preoperative humeral head subluxation; however, other factors such as patient age and activity level and rotator cuff muscle health must be considered in choosing the optimal treatment option for these patients.
