Abstract Share this page

Abstract Implant arthroplasty was once viewed as a feasible and effective trapeziometacarpal joint disease. Silastic implants are now used rarely because of concerns of implant failure and particulate synovitis. Metallic implants, including total joint prostheses and those utilizing a spacer concept, have been used with some success. Indications, technical consideration, and potential complications of these implants are discussed.
