GLOBAL ADVANTAGE® Shoulder Arthroplasty System

DePuy Synthes has combined innovative science and simple instrumentation with the GLOBAL® Shoulder's nearly two decades of clinical success to bring you the GLOBAL ADVANTAGE® Shoulder Arthroplasty System. The GLOBAL ADVANTAGE® Shoulder is a third-generation system that brings together a proximal press-fit humeral stem, low profile standard and eccentric humeral head options with easy to use instruments.

GLOBAL ADVANTAGE+ Shoulder System is an instrumentation system designed to offer surgeons a straightforward surgical technique that prepares the proximal humerus, positions the trial, and places the definitive implant to achieve adequate joint mechanics and potential pain relief for patients. The instruments were designed for ease of use and OR efficiency by incorporating features with the potential to enhance versatility, simplicity and precision throughout the surgical approach

Indication Statement

Total shoulder or hemi-shoulder replacement is indicated for: 1) A severely painful and/or disabled joint resulting from osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis; 2) Fracture dislocations of the proximal humerus where the articular surface is severely comminuted, separated from its blood supply or where the surgeon’s experience indicates that alternative methods of treatment are unsatisfactory; 3) Other difficult clinical problems where shoulder arthrodesis or resection arthroplasty are not acceptable (e.g., revision of a failed primary component).

The GLOBAL ADVANTAGE Humeral Stems, when used with a GLOBAL ADVANTAGE CTA Humeral Head, are indicated for hemi-shoulder replacement in patients with rotator cuff tears. 

The GLOBAL ADVANTAGE Shoulder System is indicated for the following fixation methods:

  • POROCOAT PorousCoated Humeral Stems are indicated for cemented or uncemented use.
  • Humeral Stems labeled “For cemented use only” are indicated only for use with bone cement.
  • Humeral Stem’s labeled “For pressfit or cemented use only” are indicated for press-fit uncemented use or for use with bone cement.
