Interphalangeal joint replacement

Ken Shirakawa, Masahiko Shirota
BACKGROUND: Postoperative contracture as a major complication of surface replacement arthroplasty (SRA) remains an unresolved problem. Contracture after SRA can occur early in the postoperative period due to mechanical dysfunction, and tardy contracture where ROM declines with time postoperatively is also reported. METHODS: 13 fingers with degenerative osteoarthritis and two fingers with post-traumatic arthritis where SRA was performed using volar approach were involved...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Joint replacement is a widely used procedure to treat painful osteoarthritis of the proximal interphalangeal joint. From 1996 to 1999, 16 patients received 19 hinged, piston-based DIGITOS prostheses in our department. In 2007, the 7-year clinical course of 14 patients (17 devices) was published in this journal. Now 12 of these patients (15 devices) have been followed with an average history of 17 years, and the preoperative data has been compared with the results after 7 and 17 years, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Primary press fit and secondary osteointegration is a precondition for component anchoring in articular surface replacements, also in the case of proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. Nevertheless, many existing prostheses for the PIP joint have failed to show sufficient osteointegration. CapFlex-PIP(©) implant is a modular metal-polyethylene surface replacement for the PIP joint consisting of a proximal and distal component each having a titanium pore backside, which allows secondary osteointegration at the bone-implant interface...

The number of cases with rheumatoid arthritis who requires arthroscopic synovectomy is declining, but it is still a useful procedure in combination with effective pharmacologic disease control. For the destruction of glenohumeral joint, total shoulder arthroplasty is effective for pain relief and functional outcome for patients without rotator cuff impairment. The reverse shoulder arthroplasty has been shown favorable short-term results, but need a careful indication for rheumatoid shoulder with poor bone stock and bone quality...

BACKGROUND: In cases of mutilating hand injuries, the primary goal is recovery of prehensile function. This is particularly true in the case of joints, which are extremely difficult to replace or reconstruct adequately when damaged. Heterotopic vascularized joint transfer is indicated when salvageable joints are available for transfer to a more functionally optimal position on the hand. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven cases of mutilating hand injuries treated with heterotopic vascularized joint transfers from 2003 to 2012 were retrospectively identified...

The current study presents the case of a 25-year-old male who developed tumor recurrence of the proximal phalange of the ring finger on the right hand 4 years after partial tumor resection surgery. An X-ray of the right hand showed that the distal bone of the proximal phalange on the ring finger was destroyed. An artificial finger joint replacement was performed using a silicone joint for this unusual tumor recurrence. The pathological findings were indicative of a giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath. As a result of surgery, the patient's proximal interphalangeal point motion recovered to the pre-operative level...

Proximal interphalangeal joint replacement is an effective treatment for painful arthritis affecting the joint. However, the complication rate is relatively high, with many of these complications related to soft-tissue imbalance or instability. Volar, dorsal, and lateral approaches have all been described with varying results. We describe a new simplified lateral hinge approach that splits the collateral ligament to provide adequate exposure of the joint. Following insertion of the prosthesis the collateral ligament is simply repaired, side-to-side, which stabilizes the joint...

Clinical results of the PyroCarbon proximal interphalangeal joint replacement are inconsistent with various complications reported. To address this, in vitro testing was conducted using finger joint simulators. Two PyroCarbon proximal interphalangeal prostheses were tested in a lubricant of dilute bovine serum to 5 × 10(6) cycles of flexion-extension (90°-30°) with dynamic forces of 10 N applied. At intervals of 3000 cycles testing ceased and a static load of 100 N was applied to simulate gripping...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the long-term results of proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint surface replacement arthroplasty for arthritis using the SR PIP implant (Small Bone Innovations, New York, NY). METHODS: This is a long-term retrospective analysis of results in 39 of 43 joints first reported in 2008. Subjective results were based upon a mailed questionnaire. Active range of motion was measured by a certified hand therapist, and x-rays were obtained to analyze changes occurring since the first study...

Prosthetic replacement of the proximal interphalangeal joints is an operative treatment for osteoarhtritis, to preserve the range of motion and the function of the hand. The purpose of this study is to detect the differences regarding pain and function between a silicone implant using a volar approach and a resurfacing implant, placed through a dorsal approach. Patients were reviewed clinically and scored. We found no significant differences in outcome between the two types of implants. However, the complication rate in the resurfacing group was significantly higher...

INTRODUCTION: Arthropathy of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint symptoms is very restrictive, and in some cases arthroplasty is required. In most of the reported series of PIP silicone arthroplasty, the technique described is the dorsal approach. As far as we know, the role of the volar approach in PIP arthroplasty has still not been adequately assessed. OBJECTIVES: To retrospectively review the patients who had PIP joint arthroplasty, and to study the clinical and radiographic outcomes in relation to the approach: volar or dorsal...

This study aimed to determine whether the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) or abductor pollicis longus (APL) can replace the function of thumb extension in hands in which the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) is absent. Cadaver dissection was performed to examine anatomical association between the interphalangeal (IP) joint and metacarpophalangeal (MP) joint of the thumb, as well as extension mechanism in clinical cases. EPB insertion could be classified into eight types, and the EPB was absent in 7.6% of all cases...

Venous anastomosis in distal fingertip replantations is not always possible, and venous congestion is recognized as a potential cause of failure. Methods previously described to address this problem include amputate deepithelization and dermal pocketing postarterial anastomosis to augment venous outflow. However, attachment of the digit to the palm or abdomen resulted in finger stiffness. We describe a modification of the previous methods by utilizing dermal flaps raised from the adjacent digit in the form of a cross-finger flap...

BACKGROUND: Injuries of the proximal interphalangeal joint (PIP joint) are common. They are frequently underestimated by patients and initial treating physicians, leading to unfavorable outcomes. Basic treatment includes meticulous clinical and radiological diagnosis as well as anatomical and biomechanical knowledge of the PIP joint. TREATMENT: In avulsions of the collateral ligaments and the palmar plate with or without involvement of bone, nonoperative treatment is preferred...

Pyrocarbon arthroplasty of the proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) has been reported to provide excellent pain relief when treating osteoarthritis of the hand. We retrospectively reviewed 20 PIPJ arthroplasties performed on 14 patients by a single surgeon using Ascension prosthesis. The mean follow up period was 3.5 years (range 1-7 years). Excellent pain relief was noted at the final follows-up. The mean range of motion improved from 40° pre-operatively to 70° post-operatively which was statistically significant...

Three commonly used approaches for the proximal interphalangeal joint replacement are volar, lateral, and dorsal approach. The advantages and disadvantages of these techniques are discussed. We describe a new option for approaching the proximal interphalangeal joint dorsally that has the advantage of maintaining near complete extensor apparatus integrity, and therefore allows early mobilization.

BACKGROUND: The authors report the use of a single slip of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) as a hemitenodesis through the A2 pulley in treating swan neck deformities after previous unconstrained proximal interphalangeal joint (PIP) arthroplasty. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was undertaken to identify non-constrained PIP joint arthroplasties that underwent a subsequent soft tissue hemitenodesis for swan neck deformities. The range of motion (ROM), implant design, preoperative diagnosis, and surgical approach were collected...

Results of anatomical resurfacing of the proximal interphalangeal joint using pyrocarbon implants showed reasonable clinical results with a high radiographic migration rate. The aim was to investigate the subjective, clinical, and radiographic results 10 years following surgery, and to compare them with our 2-year follow-up data. We re-evaluated 12 patients with 15 proximal interphalangeal implants on average 9.7 years after surgery. Pain significantly improved from 7.6 on a visual analogue scale pre-operatively to 1...
