The glenohumeral joint is not a classical mass bearing joint, the treatment of primary osteoarthritis is conservative. In all other cases, when the arthritis is associated with unbalance of the soft tissues, the treatment solution of this pathology is arthroplasty. The purpose of this study was to examine the altered metabolism in human degenerated cartilage of the shoulder joint. With the rise of temperature an endothermic reaction was observed in all cases. The use differential scanning calorimetry as part of thermal analysis was a reliable method for differentiating normal hyaline cartilage from degenerated samples.
