The estimation of results was made in the periods from 9 months to 4 years after the surgery using Swanson scale for the shoulder (A.B.Swanson shoulder score 1989). The results of treatment have been studied in 43 patients in the period from 1 to 3.5 years after the shoulder endoprosthetics surgery. Good and excellent results (>20 points) have been obtained in 31 patients (72.1%); satisfactory results (15–19 points) — in 11 patients (25.6%).
