Osteoarthritis of the shoulder is common in elderly, and arthroplasty surgery is increasing in Denmark. This review summarises the current knowledge. Results are good, and revision rates are low at ten years. Symptomatic osteoarthritis in the acromioclavicular joint are common. Most patients can be treated conservatively. Resection arthroplasty complications are rare, and the results are good. Osteoarthritis of the elbow is rare, and only a few arthroplasties are performed. Complications are common, but revision rates are relatively low, and results are improving.
