Cartilage 2018 Oct 20:1947603518805230. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

1 2nd Orthopaedic Department, School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Konstantopoulio Hospital of Nea Ionia "Agia Olga", Athens, Greece.

Various systematic reviews have recently shown that intra-articular platelet-rich plasma (IA-PRP) can lead to symptomatic relief of knee osteoarthritis for up to 12 months. There exist limited data on its use in small joints, such as the trapeziometacarpal joint (TMJ) or carpometacarpal joint (CMCJ) of the thumb. A prospective, randomized, blind, controlled, clinical trial of 33 patients with clinical and radiographic osteoarthritis of the TMJ (grades: I-III according to the Eaton and Littler classification) was conducted.

Thumb Basal Joint Arthritis.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2018 Aug;26(16):562-571

From University Orthopedics and the Department of Orthopaedics, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University (Dr. Weiss), and the Department of Orthopaedics, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI (Dr. Goodman).

The thumb basal joint is the second most common site of osteoarthritis in the hand, and osteoarthritis of this joint can contribute to painful movement and debilitating function. To achieve a high degree of prehensile and manipulative function, this highly mobile joint is constrained by both the saddle morphology of the trapezium and a stout complement of ligamentous constraints. The disease proceeds progressively with several wear patterns. Read More

Necrosis of the thumb after inadvertent injection of diclofenac in the radial artery: a case report.

J Pain Res 2017 13;10:2803-2806. Epub 2017 Dec 13.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, College of Medicine, Chungbuk National University, Cheongju, Korea.

Inadvertent intra-arterial drug injection occurs rarely, but it can cause very serious clinical complications, and thus, awareness of inadvertent intra-arterial drug injection is needed. The complications mainly result from iatrogenic reasons and can occur because of vascular variations in the arteries, under circumstances where normal intravenous injection is difficult, or in drug abusers who perform self-injection. The adverse effect associated with intra-arterial drug injection is serious and may lead to necrosis, requiring amputation of the affected extremity, infection, pseudoaneurysm, rhabdomyolysis, compartment syndrome, and permanent disability.

To better understand the role of timing of the injection of local anesthesia in hand surgery performed under general anesthesia, we evaluated the effect of pre- versus postincisional local analgesic injection on immediate postoperative pain experience. We hypothesize that the preincisional (preemptive) injection will result in decreased immediate postoperative pain experience and analgesic use when compared with postincisional injection. Read More

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2017 Jun;22(2):188-193

‡ 1st Propedeutic Surgical Clinic, Aristotle's University of Thessaloniki, AHEPA University Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Trigger finger is a mechanical problem with many etiological factors as possible causes, such as diabetes mellitus, carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive finger movements. Although it can afflict anyone, it is much commoner in middle-aged women than men and the most commonly involved digit is reported to be the thumb. The diagnosis is mainly based on clinical symptoms during examination and first-line treatment is conservative with splinting and corticosteroid injections. Read More

Evidence-based management of adult trigger digits.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2017 Jun 21;42(5):473-480. Epub 2016 Dec 21.

5 Hand Unit, Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham, UK.

The aim of this systematic review was to develop an evidence-based guideline to assist clinicians in the treatment of adult trigger digits. There is moderate evidence to suggest that local corticosteroid injection is a safe and effective short-term treatment and it may, therefore, be recommended as an initial treatment for this condition. However, when compared with surgery, there is strong evidence that corticosteroid injection is associated with increased rates of ongoing or recurrent symptoms at 6 months after intervention.
