Surgeon Testimonials for the Catalyst CSR™ Total Shoulder System
Below are several case studies and testimonials from actual surgeons performing total shoulder arthroplasties using the Catalyst CSR™ Total Shoulder System.
With the patient’s humeral deformity, a stemmed humeral prosthesis would have been impossible,” said Dr. Wiater.
Additionally, with the location of the deformity, a regular neck cut that is used with any other system would not have worked. We were fortunate to have the Catalyst CSR system for this patient.
For this procedure I used the Catalyst CSR system for a total shoulder arthroplasty using a lesser tuberosity osteotomy repair with a screw-and-suture technique.
Post operatively this patient did very well. He had return of full range of motion at 12 weeks. He was able to return to all his activities, including sporting activities as well as lifting, pushing and pulling.
The surgery using the Augmented 3-Peg Glenoid was easy to perform. This is a great benefit of the Catalyst CSR system – there are no changes to the procedure or the instrumentation from a standard to an augmented glenoid.
The Catalyst CSR system’s angled instrumentation allowed me to address the Walch B2 glenoid through a small incision and limited releases. I believe this tissue sparing approach contributes to favorable patient outcomes.
We're seeing incredible outcomes in patients with the [Catalyst CSR Total Shoulder System]. Because we're exactly replicating their anatomy we think their motion is better. We're excited about the early results in the patients we're treating. They're back to their normal activities.
I’ve used the Catalyst system for the last year with tremendous results in patients with end-stage shoulder arthritis. The system allows anatomic reconstruction of the glenohumeral joint with a minimally invasive approach, and simple, easy to use instrumentation. My patients are recovering quicker, with less pain, and have very good short-term results compared to patients that have a more standard, stemmed design.
I have been using the Catalyst shoulder prosthesis for all my anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty cases since 2017. I have used most of the other systems currently available and have found that the Catalyst is simply the most anatomic system on the market. The fit is a precise anatomic reconstruction in every single case. The surgical technique and instrumentation are pared down and streamlined, and the cases go much quicker. The system is easy to learn - the X-rays from my first Catalyst case looked perfect! I have been doing less soft tissue releases with the Catalyst, which means less postoperative pain and a faster recovery for my patients.
