Summary of "Interposition Arthroplasty Options for Carpometacarpal Arthritis of the Thumb."

Carpometacarpal (CMC) arthritis of the thumb affects half of postmenopausal women and up to 25% of elderly men. This disease can cause significant disability in affected patients often necessitating surgical intervention. Various surgical options have been used to treat refractory CMC arthritis. Any successful surgical intervention must address three goals: removal of diseased joint surfaces, reconstruction of ligamentous stabilizers, and preservation of the joint space. In this article we will discuss various interposition arthroplasty options for CMC arthritis of the thumb.

An aseptic, inflammatory arthritis developing secondary to a primary extra-articular infection, most typically of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT or UROGENITAL SYSTEM. The initiating trigger pathogens are usually SHIGELLA; SALMONELLA; YERSINIA; CAMPYLOBACTER; or CHLAMYDIA TRACHOMATIS. Reactive arthritis is strongly associated with HLA-B27 ANTIGEN.
