Abstract

The relationship between obesity and glenohumeral osteoarthritis is relatively understudied. The purpose of this study was to better define this relationship by age- and gender-matching 596,874 patients across six body mass index (BMI) cohorts and determining the prevalence of glenohumeral osteoarthritis and the standardized rate of glenohumeral arthroplasty in each cohort. Individuals with a BMI over 24 were found to be at increased odds for developing glenohumeral osteoarthritis, compared to the normal BMI cohort, and individuals with a BMI over 30 were additionally found to be at increased odds for undergoing glenohumeral arthroplasty.
