Total Shoulder II (Zimmer)

Thomas H Berquist.  Imaging atlas of orthopedic appliances and prostheses. New York : Raven Press, 1995.


Note monoblock design with dorsal and ventral fins that resemble the Cofield 2 prosthesis.  This differs from the Cofield in that it lacks a ridge/rim under the head and the stem tip is rounded off.  The inferior edge of the ventral fin is lower than the inferior edge of the dorsal fin of the Zimmer Total Shoulder II.
