1: Cite the indications for reverse TSA in fracture management.
2: Explain the advantages and potential problems associated with reverse shoulder arthroplasty.
3: Discuss a technique for performing reverse TSA after a previous hemiarthroplasty in patients with glenoid bone loss.
4: List several recommended technical pearls for performing a successful reverse TSA.
5: Describe the general protocol for progression through rehabilitation therapy after surgery for shoulder instability.
