This prospective study investigates long-term functional outcome after total trapeziometacarpal joint replacement with the Ivory arthroplasty for trapeziometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. Clinical outcome, overall function, pain, and radiologic outcome after a minimum of 10 years were evaluated for 26 Ivory arthroplasty in 24 patients. Two patients had bilateral arthroplasties. The female to male ratio was 22:2, and the mean age was 71 years (range 57-83). The mean follow-up period was 130 months (range 120-142)...

Triphalangeal thumb is a rare congenital anomaly in which the thumb has three phalanges. Clinical presentation of triphalangeal thumb can vary considerably and can be present in both hands or unilateral. The thumb can be long with a finger-like appearance. The presence of clinodactyly depends on the shape of the extra phalanx varying from wedge-shaped to rectangular. Various joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons of the first ray can be hypoplastic or absent, with varying degrees of stiffness or instability...

Our aim was to determine the minimal important change and patient acceptable symptom state for pain and the brief Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire in patients 1 year after proximal interphalangeaI joint arthroplasty. We analysed data of 100 patients from our prospective registry. The minimal important change and patient acceptable symptom state were determined with anchor-based methods, and patients with better or worse baseline status were examined. The minimal important change for pain at rest and during activities, and the brief Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire was -1...

Macrodactyly is a rare condition in which fingers, hands or limb growth is unregulated, resulting in overgrowth of tissues in the affected extremities. It is critical to properly assess these extremities for signalling pathway, psychological impact and potential surgical intervention, to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient. Treatment approaches can vary, and patient and family expectations weigh heavily on care complexity. Common surgical procedures may include epiphysiodeses, osteotomies, debulking procedures, carpal tunnel releases, toe transfers and amputations...

Angus Keogh, David James Graham, Bryan Tan
The anatomical relationships of the posterior interosseous artery and nerve are not well described. To characterize these relationships, ten cadaveric forearms were dissected and the relationships between the posterior interosseous nerve, its branches, and the posterior interosseous artery documented. The dissection of the posterior interosseous artery flap can be conceptualized in three zones with decreasing risk to the nerve as the dissection proceeds from proximal to distal. Provided fine motor branches of the posterior interosseous nerve are protected during the dissection of the nerve and artery, this flap can be harvested with safety...

We investigated the relationship between the incidence of distal radial fractures and mean annual temperature. Data for all adult patients presenting to our unit with a distal radial fracture from 2007-2014 were analysed. Incidence rates were compared with meteorological records. A Poisson regression model was used to analyse trends. Distal radial fractures were sustained by 8831 adults. The only significant change in fracture incidence occurred in 2010, in women only. This was the coldest year in the United Kingdom for over 20 years...

Andrew E Price, Harvey Chim, Herbert Valencia, John A I Grossman
We report the results of ten consecutive patients who had correction of an elbow flexion contracture of greater than 30° in brachial plexus birth injury using a modified Outerbridge-Kashiwagi procedure. All patients had minimum 23-month follow-up. Pre- and post-operative elbow range of motion and DASH scores were recorded in all patients. The operative technique for the procedure and post-operative course is discussed. Surgery was supplemented by botulinum toxin injection into the biceps brachii muscle in most cases...

The composite graft is the only surgical method that is able to maintain digital length and provide soft tissue coverage without donor site morbidities in microsurgically non-replantable fingertip amputations. This study aimed to explore the risk factors that determine the survival of composite grafts. Clinical characteristics associated with graft survival were retrospectively analysed by a comparison between the graft survival and failure groups. Of 94 patients who underwent a composite graft for fingertip amputation, the graft survived in 84 (89%)...

We aimed to examine if joint procedures in hands and wrists of patients with scleroderma could be performed without major morbidity and conducted a systematic review of the literature to assess this hypothesis. Studies were identified in four different databases; soft tissue procedures in scleroderma patients were excluded, and Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines were followed. Seven studies out of an initial total of 203 articles were included. One-hundred and twelve scleroderma patients with a total of 402 joint procedures in the hand and wrist were identified...

#12
Seung-Han Shin, Yong-Suk Lee, Keun-Young Choi, Dai-Soon Kwak, Yang-Guk Chung
Ulnolunate abutment has been thought to be aggravated by pronation because of an increase in ulnar variance. We hypothesized that the ulnolunate distance might be greater in pronation because the ulnar head is dorsally translated. Twenty-one three-dimensional reconstructions of computed tomographic scans of wrists taken in supination and pronation were investigated. The ulnolunate distance was measured in each position, and the change in ulnolunate distance from supination to pronation was calculated. The changes in ulnar variance from supination to pronation and the amount of translation of the ulnar head were measured directly by superimposing three-dimensional reconstructions...

#15
Simo K Vilkki, Pasi Paavilainen
Vascularized second metatarsophalangeal joint transfer offers a possibility to reconstruct the radial support which is lacking in radial dysplasia. Our experience from 1987 to 2017 with 34 congenital radial club hand reconstructions have allowed a possibility for long-term evaluation of the method. Compared with conventional methods, second metatarsophalangeal joint transfer results in better wrist mobility and does not restrict typical ulnar growth. The balance of the wrist remains good until age 11. Thereafter, the growth of the vascularized bone graft transfer matches only partially the distal ulnar growth in adolescence, resulting in mild recurrence of radial deviation...

Konrad Mende, José Annelie Suurmeijer, Michael Alan Tonkin
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...

The purpose of this study was to establish normal asymptomatic population values for the Disability of Arm, Shoulder and Hand and Patient-Rated Wrist/Hand Evaluation in healthy, asymptomatic individuals of different age, gender, ethnicity, handedness and nationality, using electronic data collection. Two-hundred and ninety-two Australian and 293 Canadian citizens with no active wrist pain, injury or pathology in their dominant hand, were evaluated. Participants completed an electronically administered questionnaire and were assessed clinically...
