Since the advent of suitable implant materials hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder was explored in the 1950s; total shoulder joint replacement was first reported in 1971. As interest in solutions to problems of the shoulder is growing, it appeared timely to present to interested clinicians the possibilities nd limitations of a procedure as seen after nearly two decades of trials and experience. This volume is meant to give a comprehensive overview of the bases, the development, the alternatives, the state ofthe art and, n outlook on some future trends. The number of patients with problems warranting shoulder arthroplasty is relatively small. We consider this a blessing. This may be the reason why the number of surgeons who ventured in this field has remained small, even after implants became available -testimony of an awareness, that shoulder surgery is difficult. The editors consider themselves fortunate to have been able to call on a number of those individuals, who were involved in first trials nd in their evaluation. The editors are especially indebted to those from overseas who took it upon themselves to come, share their experience nd join in the discussion. t will become apparent to those readers already familiar with the subject, that in this international concert of voices there is a cantus firmus , a tribute to one of the pioneers, whose teachings have influenced many of us -Charles S N eer II. We make the following acknowledgements with gratitude: To Springer-Verlag for excellence in cooperation nd in the producing of this volume; to our congenial translator; to the outstanding team of conference interpreters t the symposion, Mrs. K Band, Dr. A Beisel and Mr. E Feldweg nd to the staff of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Kiel, for their help in organizing the symposion.
