Brief description of the measure: Percentage of patients 18 years of age and older who obtained at least a 10% improvement in shoulder pain and/or function as measured by validated patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) completed up to 90 days prior to and 9 to 15 months after undergoing primary total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) surgery. PROMs include any validated measures of shoulder-related pain and/or function, such as PSS-Pain and PSS-Function.
DENOMINATOR: All patients 18 years of age and older undergoing elective primary TSA surgery who completed shoulder-related PROMs (e.g., PSS-Pain, PSS-Function) to measure shoulder pain and/or function up to 90 days prior to and 9-15 months after the surgery.
NUMERATOR: Patients whose shoulder pain and/or function scores at 9-15 months post-op improved by at least 10% (e.g., 10 points on a 100-point scale) from baseline.
DENOMINATOR EXCEPTION: Patients under 18 years of age; emergent (non-elective) TSA; revision TSA surgery; shoulder pain and/or function PROMs not completed up to 90 days prior to and 9-15 months after surgery.
