Brief Summary:
The aim of the study is to describe the results after > 10 years due to a prosthesis implant.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Rotator Cuff Tear Arthropathy Device: Implantation of a Delta III Prosthesis Phase 4

Detailed Description:
The aim of the study is to measure the gain of the benefit in function an painreduction which the patient yields with this type of prosthesis in a longterm (> 10 years )outcome. Additionally the long-term results will be compared with the mid-term results and the literature. Furthermore the complications since the mid-term measurement time point will be determined.
