To obtain optimal compression of the metaglene plate on bone, alternate tightening of the superior and inferior locking screws. Repeat the same steps for the superior locking screw. For eccentric glenospheres, the vertical laser mark on the trial glenosphere should be aligned with the base of the coracoid superiorly and the depu neck inferiorly.

Inspect the exposed portion of the humeral component for cement and remove as necessary. Do so by inserting the hex head tip of the handle in the corresponding plate hole right or left depending on the shoulder being operated upon and lock the assembly by tightening the internal rod.

Remove the resurfacing reamer, leaving the metaglene central guide pin in place. Select the appropriate proximal reaming guide size. Incising into anything medial to the lateral border of the conjoined tendon can result in musculocutaneous nerve injury. Check that the trial restrictor is firmly seated in the canal, then remove trial. Use the humeral cutting guide from the old DePuy Delta set to mark the cut angle on the humeral head.
