  • Causa
    In some cases it has been difficult or not possible to disassemble the adjusted dome centric from the as humeral rasp after initial positioning of the as humeral trial head which resulted in the whole construct of the dome centric with the still assembled as humeral rasp taken out of the humeral canal. this could cause a delay in surgery time or the surgeon could decide to close the wound without finishing the surgery, increasing the infection risk or second use of anesthesia necessary.
