Injection * 1.
In contrast to the previously reported cases, which occurred after carpal tunnel injection (in close proximity to the ulnar neurovascular bundle), in our patient, the injections were performed at the thumb carpometacarpal joint
and the flexor tendon sheath.
The biomechanics of the carpometacarpal joint
of the thumb.
Fractures involving the base of the metacarpal should be scrutinized carefully to rule out any involvement of the adjacent carpometacarpal joint
Direct the central ray perpendicular to a point 1 inch distal of the radius and 1 inch medial of the base of the first carpometacarpal joint
Cartiva SCI is currently available in Canada, Europe and South America where it is primarily used for resurfacing of the MTP joint, the carpometacarpal joint
and the knee.

The patient temporarily wore a first web space splint to correct for problems with thumb abduction resulting from carpometacarpal joint
The design of pipettes usually requires the thumb carpometacarpal joint
to be in extension, but it is not known how often and to what extent the thumb assumes these postures.
Some degree of rotation in pronation and supination is afforded mostly at the carpometacarpal joint
