Sant'andrea Hospital, Traumatology Sports Center "Kilk Kilgour", "La Sapienza" University, Via Di Grottarossa, 1035-1039, Rome, RM, Italy.

Introduction: Biological arthroplasties are the most used surgical techniques, for the treatment of trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis; all of them provide the reconstruction of trapeziometacarpal joint by a tendon graft. The aim of the study is to compare two surgical techniques: interposition arthroplasty and suspension arthroplasty at 12-month follow-up in order to evaluate the clinical and radiographic results.

Methods: Sixty-seven patients surgically treated for basal thumb osteoarthritis were divided into two groups: 36 patients, (8 M; 27 F) (39 hands), treated with interposition arthroplasty are included in group A and 31 patients, (6 M; 25 F) (34 hands), treated with suspension are included in group B.

Volar Resurfacing of the Thumb with a Superficial Circumflex Iliac Artery Perforator Flap after Hydrofluoric Acid Burn.

J Hand Microsurg 2018 Dec 5;10(3):162-165. Epub 2018 Apr 5.

Division of Plastic Surgery, University of Colorado, Aurora, Colorado, United States.

A right-hand-dominant 55-year-old male automotive mechanic presented 24 hours following a hydrofluoric acid burn to the volar left thumb. Despite the severity of soft tissue injury, the neurovascular bundles were intact. Although a free toe-pulp flap is often described to cover volar digit defects, the resultant 6- × 4-cm full-thickness injury of the thumb was too large to be adequately covered by a toe-pulp flap or other commonly used local flaps from the ipsilateral hand.

Assessment of Dorsal Subluxation in Thumb Carpometacarpal Osteoarthritis.

J Hand Microsurg 2018 Dec 20;10(3):125-129. Epub 2018 Mar 20.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

Although dorsal subluxation is a typical finding for osteoarthritis of the thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) joint, it is difficult to evaluate the subluxation after trapeziectomy and the significance of its surgical correction combined with trapeziectomy is still controversial. The purpose of this study was to develop a method to evaluate dorsal subluxation without using landmarks on the trapezium. Thirty patients with thumb CMC arthritis and 13 normal patients were included in this study. Read More

Transferring the Motor Branch of the Opponens Pollicis to the Terminal Division of the Deep Branch of the Ulnar Nerve for Pinch Reconstruction.

J Hand Surg Am 2019 Jan 23;44(1):9-17. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Center of Biological and Health Sciences, Department of Neurosurgery, University of the South of Santa Catarina (Unisul), Tubarão, SC, Brazil.

Purpose: With ulnar nerve injuries, paralysis of the first dorsal interosseous (FDI) and the adductor pollicis (ADP) muscles weakens pinch. The likelihood that these muscles will be reinnervated following ulnar nerve repair around the elbow is very low. To overcome this obstacle, we propose a more distal repair: transferring the opponens pollicis motor branch (OPB) to the terminal division of the deep branch of the ulnar nerve (TDDBUN). Read More

Surgical techniques for reconstruction of the hypoplastic thumb.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2018 Aug 22:1753193418793579. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

3 Department of Hand and Peripheral Nerve Surgery, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney.

The reconstruction of a congenital hypoplastic thumb usually involves release of a tight first web space, metacarpophalangeal joint stabilization, reconstruction of intrinsic muscle function, and extrinsic tendon reconstruction, as appropriate. Numerous surgical options and combinations are available, but the approaches vary among surgeons who work in the field of congenital hand surgery and the empirical evidence that allows for evaluation of the results of techniques is scarce. Both the pre-operative assessment and intra-operative findings of all thumb elements - bone, joints, and soft tissues - should be considered in the surgical decision-making and eventually define the methods of reconstruction.

Result of A1 pulley reconstruction after closed rupture of the thumb pulleys during childbirth.

Hand Surg Rehabil 2018 Oct 17;37(5):311-315. Epub 2018 Jul 17.

Department of hand and reconstructive surgery, hôpital de la Timone, chirurgie de la main et réparatrice des membres, Aix-Marseille University, Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Marseille, 264, rue Saint-Pierre, 13385 Marseille cedex 5, France. Electronic address:

Closed rupture of the thumb flexor tendon pulleys is rare. Although anatomical and biomechanical studies have exposed the roles played by the pulleys in flexor pollicis longus (FPL) function, no standardized surgical management has yet been defined, in contrast to situations where pulley reconstruction is required in the fingers. We describe a case of rupture of the three pulleys in the thumb that probably occurred after violent thumb grasp during childbirth in the absence of any other trauma. Read More

Two Cases of Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injury With Complete Spinal Cord Injury.

Hand (N Y) 2018 Nov 13;13(6):NP27-NP31. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

1 Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Background: Traumatic brachial plexus injury (BPI) in patients with complete spinal cord injury (SCI) such as paraplegia or tetraplegia is a very rare and debilitating combined injury that can occur in high-energy traumas. Management of a BPI should be aimed at regaining strength for self-transfers and activities of daily living to restore independence. However, brachial plexus reconstruction (BPR) in this unique patient population requires considerable planning due to the combined elements of upper and lower motor neuron injuries. Read More

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

Trapeziometacarpal stabilization through dorsoradial ligament reconstruction: An early post-surgery in vivo biomechanical analyses.

J Orthop Res 2018 Nov 23;36(11):2851-2864. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Department of Development and Regeneration, KU Leuven Campus Kulak, Kortrijk, Belgium.

Ligament reconstruction can provide pain relief in patients with a painful, unstable, pre-arthritic trapeziometacarpal (TMC) joint. Imbrication of the dorsoradial ligament (DRL) has been proposed as a minimal invasive stabilization technique. It requires less invasive surgery than an Eaton-Littler technique and shows promising long-term clinical outcome. Read More

Trapeziectomy with Interpositional Arthroplasty using Acellular Dermal Matrix: Description of Technique and Early Outcomes.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 May 14;6(5):e1763. Epub 2018 May 14.

Department of Plastic Surgery, North Bend Medical Center, Coos Bay, Ore.

Background: Trapeziectomy with interpositional arthroplasty using Repriza acellular dermal matrix is a novel technique to treat primary and secondary carpometacarpal joint arthritis. Early studies with nonautograft interposition indicate promising post-trapeziectomy space maintenance with results similar to ligament reconstruction with tendon interposition, without the potential risks and increased operating time of harvesting a tendon autograft.

Methods: Eleven patients in a retrospective cohort were followed for a minimum of 6 weeks (mean, 12). Read More

Modified Eaton-Littler's Reconstruction for Traumatic Thumb Carpometacarpal Joint Instability: Operative Technique and Clinical Outcomes.

J Wrist Surg 2018 Jul 9;7(3):191-198. Epub 2017 Nov 9.

Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics, Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, Southport, United Kingdom.

 Injuries to thumb carpometacarpal joint ligaments lead to instability. Eaton-Littler's ligament reconstruction traditionally uses a strip of flexor carpi radialis to stabilize the CMC joint.  We have modified this technique to reproduce the direction of active action of the anterior oblique ligament by reconstructing both the volar and dorsoradial ligaments.

Department of Neurology and Neuroscience, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Science, Mizuho-ku, Nagoya, Japan.

Background: Striatal dopamine is functionally important for the acquisition of motor skills. However, it remains controversial as to whether intrinsic processing of motor learning is impaired in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), and if yes, whether the impairment is associated with altered striatal dopamine release. Additionally, most neuro-imaging studies of patients with PD have focused on motor sequence learning. Read More
