 Glenoid loosening was associated with stress at the implant and cement. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of pegs and its distribution on stress transfer to the implant and cement. Six commercially available implant designs were simulated via finite element analysis with different peg distributions. Maximum stress at the implant and cement and stress critical area (SCA) at the cement were obtained. Partially cemented implants had the ability to reduce the stress at the implant and cement by adding more fins at the central peg.
