About this product

Division: Shoulder Reconstruction
Category: Anatomic

DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction has combined innovative science and technology, and robust, user-friendly instrumentation with the GLOBAL Shoulder's nearly two decades of clinical heritage to bring you the GLOBAL AP Shoulder System.
The GLOBAL AP or Adjustable Prosthesis was the first shoulder system that provided options for variability of 30° in the neck shaft angle and version, and a standard 135° angle similar to the GLOBAL ADVANTAGE® Shoulder Arthroplasty System.
The GLOBAL AP System offers the surgeon a shoulder prosthesis that can restore anatomical function by incorporating variability of the humeral head's position relative to the humeral stem.
