Wassel VI Duplications: A Report of 2 Cases, Soft-tissue Anatomy, and Reconstructive Approach.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Nov 5;6(11):e1996. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, Calif.

Preaxial polydactyly represents an embryologic failure of formation and differentiation that is most commonly classified according to the level of bony duplication. The soft-tissue anatomy and approach to reconstruction of a Wassel VI thumb, an uncommon variant in which complete duplication begins at the metacarpals has not been extensively discussed in the literature. Here, we present 2 patients with a Wassel VI duplication and a shared soft-tissue variant of anomalous insertion of the opponens pollicis muscle onto the radial hypoplastic digit. Read More

Reconstruction of A Type IIIB Hypoplastic Thumb with A Huber Opposition Transfer in A Five-Year-Old Girl: Redefining Surgical Treatment.

World J Plast Surg 2019 Jan;8(1):97-105

Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Thumb hypoplasia, a congenital deficiency of bony and soft tissue of thumb, is often associated with systemic syndromes like Holt-Oram syndrome, and is the second most common thumb anomaly after duplicated thumb. It has traditionally been classified into six categories, which help guide treatment including reconstruction versus pollicization (transfer of the index finger to thumb). Amputation of the thumb and pollicization is the traditional treatment for a IIIB hypoplastic thumb. Read More

Basal Joint Arthritis A Review of Pathology, History, and Treatment.

Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013) 2019 Mar;77(1):57-63

The basal joint is a collection of articulations at the base of thumb that serve an important function in the overall dexterity of the hand. The unique anatomy of the basal joint provided many evolutionary advantages to the human hand, but also made this joint susceptible to arthrosis and degenerative changes. Surgical treatment of basal joint arthritis has continued to evolve since it was first described in 1949, including excisional arthroplasty, tendon interposition, ligament reconstruction, implant arthroplasty, and arthroscopy.

The Stener Lesion and Complete Ulnar Collateral Ligament Injuries of the Thumb A Review.

Bull Hosp Jt Dis (2013) 2019 Mar;77(1):11-20

A Stener lesion is a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) from the thumb proximal phalanx at the level of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint that is displaced superficial to the adductor pollicis aponeurosis, leading to interposition of the aponeurosis between the UCL and the MCP joint. The interposition of the adductor aponeurosis distinguishes the Stener lesion from other UCL injuries and impedes healing, thereby necessitating surgery. A thorough clinical examination, including valgus stress testing of the MCP joint, is crucial to the diagnosis. Read More

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.

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

Short-Term Results after Total Trapeziectomy with a Poly-L/D-Lactide Spacer.

J Wrist Surg 2018 Nov 2;7(5):394-398. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium.

 Proximal migration of the first metacarpal can be seen after total trapeziectomy and various techniques have been described to prevent this subsidence.  We hypothesized the insertion of a poly-L/D-lactide spacer to prevent proximal migration of the first metacarpal without the need of an additional ligament reconstruction, allowing early mobilization and less demanding rehabilitation.  Ten thumbs were treated with a total trapeziectomy and insertion of a poly-L/D-lactide scaffold.

Ulnar Subluxation of the Extensor Pollicis Longus Tendon as a Cause of Congenital Clasped Thumb: A Case Report.

J Hand Surg Asian Pac Vol 2018 Sep;23(3):408-411

* Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Tsuchiura Kyodo Hospital, Tsuchiura, Japan.

A 15-year-old male patient presented with difficulty extending his right thumb due to subluxation of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon. Physical examination showed that active motion of the thumb's metacarpophalangeal (MP) joint was 76° in flexion and -58° in extension. During active extension, the EPL tendon shifted onto the ulnar aspect of the MP joint, and the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) tendon shifted onto the central dorsal course of the MP joint. Read More

Self-Reported Postoperative Opioid-Prescribing Practices Following Commonly Performed Orthopaedic Hand and Wrist Surgical Procedures: A Nationwide Survey Comparing Attending Surgeons and Trainees.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2018 Oct;100(19):e127

Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Background: Although orthopaedic surgeons have been shown to prescribe excessive amounts of opioid analgesics postoperatively, the degree in which surgical trainees contribute to this trend is unknown. The purpose of this study was to compare self-reported opioid-prescribing behavior, factors influencing this behavior, and perceptions of patient opioid utilization and disposal between hand surgeons and trainees.

Methods: Attending hand surgeons and trainees in hand, orthopaedic, and plastic surgery programs were invited to participate in a web-based survey including demographic characteristics; self-reported prescribing behavior specific to 4 procedures: open carpal tunnel release, trigger finger release, thumb carpometacarpal arthroplasty, and distal radial fracture open reduction and internal fixation; and perceptions and influencing factors.

Surgical techniques for reconstruction of the hypoplastic thumb.

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019 Jan 22;44(1):15-24. 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.

Department of Hand and Plastic Surgery, the Second Affiliated Hospital and Yuying Children's Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou Zhejiang, 325027, P.R.China.

Surgery is still the main treatment for congenital polydactyly, and the aim of surgical reconstruction is to obtain a thumb with excellent function and appearance. A systematic assessment of polydactyly is required prior to surgery, including bone stress lines, joint deviation, joint activity and joint instability, size and development of finger and nail. Bone shape, joint incongruency, and abnormal tendon insertions must be corrected completely, in order to obtain good function and to avoide secondary surgery. Read More
