Multisequence MRI study was conducted after 3plane axial localizer, coronal T1 weighted image, tSE revealed splitting of the pre-insertional portion of Extensor pollicis longus tendon which was seen just distal to the carpometacarpal
joint of thumb.
Osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal
(CMC) joint is the most common site of arthritis in the hand/wrist region, affecting up to 11% of men and 33% of women in their 50s and 60s.
Left hand radiographs demonstrated thumb carpometacarpal
joint arthritis with no other notable abnormalities.
The GRIP study is a prospective feasibility Phase II study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Cartiva SCI in the treatment of first carpometacarpal
This rare anatomical variation may pose clinical dilemmas to the operating surgeon who aims to utilise the FCR either for tendon transfer, for tendon graft, or, as seen in our case, in the reconstruction of a carpometacarpal
excision at the thumb.
11] Hand: The length of each metacarpal was measured as the distance between the most prominent point of the metacarpal and midpoint of the line in the carpometacarpal
space [Figure 2].
Osteoarthritis in the carpometacarpal
joint of the thumb.
In a study evaluating the effect of Kaltenborn manual therapy on sensory and motor function in elderly patients with secondary carpometacarpal
(CMC) OA, it was shown that the pain pressure threshold in the CMC joint and scaphoid bone areas was increased, however grip strength was not improved.
The limbs were amputated at the level of the carpometacarpal
joint and were examined to exclude limbs with any gross anatomical abnormalities or damage produced during the cutting process.
Three subtypes of construct validity (convergent, divergent and structural validity) of the PRWHE were evaluated with 122 patients post arthroplasty for osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal
joint (MacDermid et al 2007).
Erosive or inflammatory OA is a subset of primary OA with a predilection for the hands, in particular distal interphalangeal joints, proximal interphalangeal joints and the first carpometacarpal
3-year follow-up radiographic and ultrasound (US) assessment of all first carpometacarpal
, distal interphalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, metacarpophalangeal, and first interphalangeal joints.
