A 65-year-old female patient presents with a painful and dysfunctional right shoulder 14 years after anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty and subsequent glenoid component removal for aseptic loosening. What are the treatment options for revision shoulder arthroplasty in the setting of significant glenoid-sided bone deficiency?
