2. Rheumatoid / Inflammatory Arthritis

3. Post-traumatic arthritis.

4. Focal and large (Hill-Sachs) osteochondral defects.

2. Subject receives (prospective cohort) the PyroTITAN HRA device after the re-release of
the product or received (retrospective cohort) the PyroTITAN HRA device after the re-
release of the product and is enrolled in the study prior to their two-year follow-up

Key exclusion criteria
Patients will be excluded from participation if they:

1. Has/had destruction of the proximal humerus to preclude rigid fixation of the humeral

2. Has/had insufficient bone quality as determined by intra- operative evaluation.

3. Has/had arthritis with defective rotator cuff.

4. Has/had had a failed rotator cuff surgery.

5. Has/had loss of musculature, neuromuscular compromise or vascular deficiency in the
affected limb rendering the procedure unjustified.

return for the postoperative follow- up visits prescribed by the protocol.

9. Are/were skeletally immature.

10. Has/had a known allergic reaction to PyroCarbon.

11. Has/had other conditions such as central nervous system disturbances, alcohol or drug
addiction, etc. that may make effective evaluation of the joint replacement difficult
or impossible.

12. Has/had known, active metastatic or neoplastic disease.

13. Are/were taking > 10mg/day corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone) excluding inhalers,
within 3 months prior to surgery.
