Caption: Shoulder replacement. Coloured x-ray of an artificial shoulder joint in a 66 year old woman, frontal view. This is a total arthroplasty, meaning that both sides of the joint have been replaced. Cartilage and synovial fluid that normally protect and lubricate the joint may disintegrate or wear down, leading to painful friction between the bones and requiring surgical replacement. This may be due to aging, injury or disease such as arthritis.
